Large group fully insured broker service fees

For large group fully insured plans, beginning on or after January 1, 2016, we stopped charging broker commissions. Instead, BCBSRI has moved to including a service fee in the invoices for those large groups that have arranged to pay their brokers such a fee. Since that change, we’ve received multiple questions about broker service fees.

We’ve created an FAQ document that addresses and answers many of your questions about the Broker Service Fees Agreement and how we collect these fees on your behalf.

If you have any questions that aren’t covered in the FAQ, please contact your BCBSRI sales representative. Thank you for your feedback, and your patience throughout this transition.
