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
