Why Don't Carriers Release Commission Schedules?

By on | No Comments

Question: The carriers know exactly what the commissions are for 2014. Why haven’t they released them?

Answer: The carriers submitted their proposed commission plans for approval by the state governing bodies - DOI and DMHC - about 2 months ago. They probably thought that they would be rubber stamped in short order and that’s why they told us that we would see commission schedules in June. But approval was delayed, and at least one of the primary California carriers was told by the DMHC that their commission plan was unacceptable. That took place just 2 weeks ago. So for at least one Covered California insurer the agent commission is yet to be determined. I expect all carriers will release their commission rates together to prevent unfair competition while changes can still be made.
