Information Sessions

New Broker Training

In the past, Excellus BlueCross BlueShield has held in-person training sessions for newly appointed brokers/producers two times throughout the year.  We have received feedback that there is a need for this session to be held virtually.  We have taken your feedback and are pleased to announce that we are working on a plan to deliver this information via a virtual experience for 2021!

Please continue to check this site and future broker blasts for updates.  We will share details with you as we get closer to launching this training opportunity!

Session typically provides foundational materials and resources available to brokers and producers who partner on commercial group business with Excellus BCBS. Topics include Underwriting, Products, Online Tools, and much more.

We do not restrict anyone from attending; however, the content is geared toward our new partners. Please contact your Account Consultant if you are interested in attending.

Open Enrollment Session

Excellus BlueCross BlueShield holds virtual training sessions for Open Enrollment updates annually.

Our Fall 2020 Open Enrollment Broker Meeting live stream recordings are now available. The links have been separated out by topic so that it is easier to find the content you're looking for.

As we finalize the details for the Fall 2021 open enrollment session, we will share them on this page and in future broker blasts.  

Individual Market Webinars

We continue to be here to support you and help with the many questions you and your clients may have about free or low-cost health insurance alternatives to COBRA. That’s why we’re providing additional guidance for employer groups who are currently or anticipating an employee reduction in their workforce. Our Group Sales team has partnered with our Safety Net & Individual Market Sales teams to create a webinar designed to assist you with your conversations. Some of the topics include:

  • Navigating through the products available
  • NY State pandemic guidance
  • Timing of layoffs to ensure no gap in coverage

In addition to this recorded webinar, our Safety Net & Individual Market Sales teams continue to be available for any employer meetings where you would like our participation. Please reach out to your account representative with any questions.
