Revised COBRA & Cal-COBRA Commission Policy
Dec 22, 2009
Revised Policy Issued December 22, 2009
COBRA commission guideline affects new Cal-COBRA enrollees only
In a previous letter and e-mail, Anthem Blue Cross notified you that commissions on newly enrolled COBRA members would be discontinued as of February 1, 2010. They have decided to limit this policy to Cal-COBRA commissions only, not all COBRA enrollees. This affects new Cal-COBRA enrollees, not Cal-COBRA enrollees already in force. Anthem Blue Cross will continue to pay commissions on Federal COBRA enrollees, as they understand the need to further study that issue separately.
These guidelines will be effective for Small Group on February 1, 2010, and for Large Group upon renewal beginning February 1, 2010.
