  It's time for Empire BlueCross BlueShield and the Small Group market

 

  As you may have already heard, Empire BlueCross BlueShield is re-entering the small group market. Built on the foundation of responsible pricing, Empire has dedicated a tremendous amount of time and resources to ensure success over the long-term, with a commitment to the GA, the broker and your clients.
 
  With strong rate approval comes strong compensation. Empire will pay 5% of premium on EPO/PPO sales and renewals in 2017. 4% of this is a base amount which Empire envisions continuing to pay into 2018. HMO sales will pay a 2% of premium commission in 2017.
 
  Premiums are consistent across the NYC, Long Island, and Mid-Hudson rating areas. The Empire 2017 Small Group Product Guide includes some of the higher-level benefit and plan details. SBC and SOB documents will be available in early October.

  With 28 new plans, 3 provider networks and an enormous investment in technology/efficiency, Empire is properly equipped to re-enter the Small Group market, and support the broker community the right way.
 
  Empire will also be making available a new library of materials to support your client to make selling these new products easier. It includes selling   tools, plan and network education, as well as employee on-boarding materials.
