NEW Anthem BCBS Med Supp Bonus Program!

Great news for brokers in Ohio! The more you sell the more you earn during Anthem’s Medicare Supplement Sales Bonus Program!

Now YOU have a new opportunity to earn even more on EVERY Medicare Supplement Plan you SELL!

New, short-term incentives have just been announced for brokers who sell Anthem Medicare Supplement plans! Don’t miss out on this limited time opportunity to earn more when you sell Medicare Supplement plans with 7/1, 8/1 or 9/1/2018 effective dates!* 

Program Rules:

  • All per sale bonus amounts are earned for Medicare Supplement enrollments for that particular month only.
  • All per sale bonus amounts are in addition to the standard broker compensation.
  • All per sale bonus amounts are non-cumulative; each month is treated separately.

How Does it Work?

  • If you sell 3–4 approved Medicare Supplement plan enrollments you’ll receive an additional $100 bonus per sale!
  • If you sell 5–9 approved Medicare Supplement plan enrollments you’ll receive an additional $150 bonus per sale!
  • But if you sell 10 or more approved Medicare Supplement plan enrollments you’ll receive an additional $225 bonus per sale!

EXAMPLE:  If you sell THREE Medicare Supplement policies in a month with a qualifying effective date of 7/1, 8/1, or 9/1 you’ll earn a $300 bonus (3 × $100)! But if you sell TEN Plan policies, you’ll earn $2,250 (10 × $225)!

Your current and prospective clients can benefit from these money-saving options on every Anthem plan:

  • A 5% discount on each policy if there is more than one Medicare Supplement policy written in a household with a coverage date of June 1, 2010 or after.
  • Receive $2 off their monthly premium simply by enrolling in automatic electronic premium payments – a savings of $24 annually. Save $48 by paying their premium for the entire year.
  • There are even greater savings for your clients when you help them combine discounts (based on eligibility).

While your clients are saving money, they can also stay healthy by taking advantage of the SilverSneakers Fitness Program, which offers eligible Modernized Anthem Medicare Supplement members a Basic Membership with access to over 13,000 locations nationwide – at no extra cost!**

So don’t wait!  It’s time to take advantage of this limited time opportunity to make more money selling Anthem Medicare Supplement Plans!


* Incentive is limited to new enrollees only-and based upon approval of the policy. All incentives will be paid within ninety days of the end of the bonus period. Anthem reserves the right to make all rules and determinations regarding the bonus program and may modify or eliminate the program at any time without notice.  For more detailed information on the bonus program, please contact your Regional Sales Manager.

**SilverSneakers® is a value-added program. It is not insurance and not part of the Medicare Supplement insurance plans. It can be changed or withdrawn at any time.

Anthem Reduces the Paper Trail With Electronic ID Cards

Small group and individual Anthem members enrolled in ACA plans now have the option to choose electronic ID cards without receiving an additional hard copy. Members can view their electronic ID card on the Anthem Anywhere mobile app, even without internet connection. The electronic ID card adds the convenience of emailing or faxing a copy of the ID to a provider.

Contact your Cornerstone representative with any questions.
