Initial vs True-up, pro-rata and Medicare supplements
MA, MAPD and PDP commissions are broken up into two payments. The initial payment will represent half of the initial year compensation and the true-up will be the second half of the compensation. True-ups are only paid in specific situations. In some cases, commissions are also pro-rated. To learn more about true up’s and pro-rata, you can watch our webinar on the topic.

Medicare Advantage Commissions 2022: Medicare supplements
Medicare supplement commissions are different than MA, MAPD and PDP compensation. CMS does not offer guidance on the timing or amount of commissions for Medicare supplements. As a result, the compensation varies a great deal from company to company and state to state with Medicare supplements. Agents need to review commission schedules for each carrier or contact us to get the commission schedule for a specific supplement plan.
