Blue Honors Program – Being Our Partner Just Got More Rewarding


A rewards program for very important partners, like you.

As brokers, you’re on the front lines every day — talking with customers and employer groups, weighing their options, and selling our plans. Excellus BlueCross BlueShield is grateful for all your hard work. That’s why we’re offering you a chance to take part in a rewards program called Blue Honors.

How Blue Honors works

Every qualified broker will receive their own scorecard. Your score, which determines the tier you qualify for, is based on four performance metrics:

  • In Force Contracts (Active Group Medical Contracts)
  • New Medical Contracts (New Medical Group Contracts with Excellus BCBS Health Plan Business)
  • Ancillary Premium (Total Dental Premium)
  • Medical Retention (Group Contract Retention calculated by current month versus start of year, new contracts included in percentage)

  • Two-year seat on Excellus BCBS Broker Advisory Council
  • Contribution to a charity of your choice ($1,000)**
  • Access to wellness credits (5,000)
  • Eligible to participate in a Broker Appreciation Day
