BCBSTX 2021 SEP Retail Bonus Program
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) is excited to announce that we have a new bonus program for special enrollment period (SEP) sales. This bonus is separate from and in addition to the 50/50 bonus program announced last fall.
The bonus program is simple. To be eligible, sell a minimum of 50 new individual qualified health plan (QHP) contracts with effective dates between March 1st, 2021 through June 1st, 2021, and you’ll earn $25 per contract up to $25K.
Bonus Payout Examples
* A contract is defined as a policy. For example, one contract/policy may have 5 total members. For the purposes of this bonus, we are counting contracts/policies, not members/lives.‡ If a producer sells more than 1,000 contracts during the bonus period, the payout will be no more than $25,000.The maximum award per contracted producer/agency is $25,000.
See below for all terms and conditions.
