If you are in any rural part of PA, you already know this...but has anyone else come up with this?

A carrier has three network levels: partner, select and premium. The smaller networks are in effect the closer that you get to an urban center, Pittsburgh, for example. Out here in the rural zone between Erie and The Burgh, we only have the ability to write Premium network, as fewer people, fewer doctors, more space between the patient and the doctor/hospital/provider and if you need a major service, you have to travel so you have the larger number of providers. You probably get the idea.

So, 10 minutes before I was going to turn off my computer and head over the river and through the dale to home. I get a notification that the commission rates for 2018 are set. 1st year=$10 per member, Renewal=$5 per member, but only for the Partner and Select networks! For us country-folk, us poor cousins selling premium network plans "No Commission Payable".

How is that even possible?

Carriers are quick not to pay on unprofitable rural business.
