    This actually did happen to an agent that I know. Will she get a second chance?

    According to the rules she's unable to market 2018 MA and PDP plans. However, she should contact AHIP at 866-234-6909 to discuss additional options (this tip is recommended in the certification guidelines for HCSC).

    Unfortunately she will have to become an FE agent now...

    Hopefully, the agent isn't currently receiving MA or PDP renewals

    You get 3 tries per enrollment and can enroll at least two times so that's a total of 6 tries, has she used all of those?

    This isn't true for all carriers. Some (Humana for instance) require you to pass AHIP within your first 3 attempts otherwise you are out for that plan year.

    She has only used up 3 attempts.

    She really should have used her phone a friend lifeline after attempt two. All the agents I work with know if you don't pass after strike two, do not take the third attempt without help. Hopefully a call to AHIP may give her options. This is a good cautionary tale for newer agents, though.

    I thought you could pay a second time, get 3 more tries?

    I believe that is correct but as someone pointed out, some carriers limit the attempts for marketing their plans and continued renewals to three.
