Medicare Advantage commissions 2024 are now official. CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) releases the max allowable commission for MA and PDP plans every year. Carriers can pay agent level commissions up to the max listed amount. While this is the amount they can pay it does not necessarily mean they will pay the max. Traditionally most do pay at the max however. A number of carriers have been increasing the renewals to the max for new renewals and in many cases for renewals on existing business.
