Welcome to the Certified Medicaid Planner™ program. The CMP™ program is designed to award the designation of Certified Medicaid Planner™ to qualified professionals in the field of Medicaid planning.
The program is run by the Certified Medicaid Planner™ Governing Board which is an independent standards board created by the Wealth Preservation Institute to develop and implement the CMP™ program.
By setting high standards for those who earn the CMP™ designation and promoting both the designation and those who are certified to use it, the greater public interest is served. Consumers of Medicaid Planning services can rely on a CMP™ to be a highly qualified professional with the requisite knowledge, skill and ethics, to meet their planning needs.
With an aging population relying ever more heavily on the Medicaid program to finance long-term care, the purpose of the CMP™ certification program is to recognize individuals with a proficient understanding of the federal Medicaid long-term care program and who are qualified to assist persons seeking to achieve Medicaid eligibility for benefits under the program.
The goal of the CMP™ program is to promote high standards of care and ethical practices in the field of Medicaid Planning. To achieve that objective, the CMP™ certification program adopts and upholds standards of qualification, standards of practice, and administers a certification exam that assesses both the knowledge and skill underlying the performance of the tasks required by a professional in the practice of Medicaid planning.
In addition to individual recognition, the CMP™ certification provides a mechanism to recognize individuals who continue to demonstrate their qualifications through adherence to the standards of professional behavior and compliance with the CMP™ continuing education requirements.
The CMP™ certification program awards the designation “Certified Medicaid Planner™” and its acronym “CMP™” to those individuals who successfully meet the educational, experience, ethical and examination requirements for professional certification.
