"final" is a good word as I have officially written my "final" piece of business for that mickey mouse outfit.

same one that has this clause in its contract:

we can cancel your contract at any time with 30 days notice without any reason at all, and if we do, no further commissions will be payable.

I thought BC/BS of Texas would have the same commissions as BC/BS of Illinois, since they're both owned by Health Care Services Corporation.

But it looks like everything IS INDEED bigger in Texas...including the commission cuts from BCBS.

Illinois = 10% for average producers / 15% for above average Eff 1/1/2011.

Actually, most Blue Cross companies don't need agents. They have enough "Star Power" to maintain and grow their customer base via online methods, media advertising, etc.. For example, even though BCBS is one of the more expensive here in Illinois, the bevy of BlueCross plans take up the top 20 spots on the list when a quote is requested @ www.healthcare.gov.

BCBS Commission Schedule With an Effective Date on or After Janua Re: BCBS Commission Schedule With an Effective Date on or After J jbage007 is the thread starter for: BCBS Commission Schedule With an Effective Date on or After Janua

I've thought this through and here's what I think I am going to tell prospective clients, henceforth:

Sorry ma'm, but Blue Cross don't axept brokers no more. Of course, you could buy direct from them, but then, you wouldn't have an agent to look after ya when they jack their rates 26% (because they ARE undercutting the market at this time).
