ISCEBS Fellowship Exam - Course Approved for State CE

There is no one path to earning ISCEBS Fellowship. Learn how you can add "ISCEBS-Fellow" to your professional profile.

The ISCEBS Fellowship course offers members a contemporary look at emerging issues, current trends and best practices that impact the benefits space. See the topics for Canada and the United States. The testing window for members choosing to take the Fellowship exam is April 15 through July 31, 2019.

The Fellowship exam offers members three options: Health/Group Benefits-only exam, Retirement-only exam or a combined exam testing in both areas. Members may also utilize a CEBS course to earn the ISCEBS-Fellow distinction and may test at any time during the year.

The Fellowship course was recently approved for state insurance credit. See if your state is pending approval.

As a Society member, you have the opportunity to participate in this unique survey focused exclusively on medical stop loss – an ever important aspect of self-funded medical plans. With health care reform’s removal of annual and lifetime health plan maximums, there continues to be a significant growth in both catastrophic claim frequency and severity – including those in excess of $1 million or more.
