Anthem: Important changes to your Individual commission schedule

November 20, 2017

Affordable Care Act, Anthem, Commissions

Dear Valued Broker,

As we announced at the beginning of 2016, we will continue to pay commissions on individual policies sold during Open Enrollment (OE) only. We will also continue the same commission level as last year. As a reminder, policies sold during the Special Enrollment Period (SEP) will not be eligible for commission payments.

The change to this year’s commission schedule is related to the effective dates for which commissions will be paid. In prior years, OE was extended and individuals who enrolled during OE had a 1/1, 2/1, or 3/1 effective date. To better serve brokers, we aligned our commissions with this schedule. Since OE ends on 12/15/2017 this year, 2018 commissions will only be paid for individual policies sold with a 1/1/2018 effective date.

We value your partnership and remain committed to you and your clients. Should you have any questions, please contact the Sales Compensation department at 877-304-6470.
