Agent commissions going paperless on November 1
Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield is moving to a 100% paperless environment for payment of agent commissions.
Effective November 1, 2019, we will pay commissions only via electronic funds transfer (EFT). We believe this to be a quicker, more secure way to transfer commission payments to agents.
If you do not have an EFT account with us, it is easy to set one up. If you do not have a Blueprint for Agents account, you must first register for one by going to www.blueprintforagentsarkansas.com. Once you have set up a Blueprint for Agents account, you can set up electronic funds transfer (EFT) for your commissions from the Blueprint for Agents home page. Here is a step-by-step guide:
Under the Quick Links section, click the Automatic Bank Deposit link. (Note: This link is only visible to the agency’s Chief Administrator.)
Fill out the Automatic Bank Deposit form to set up your EFT.
Complete all required fields, and click the Accept button under the Notice of Agreement.
The site will then take you to the EFT Confirmation Page, where you can print a hard copy of your banking information. You should keep a hard copy of your Confirmation Page in your records.
After printing your EFT Confirmation Page, click the Back button to view your EFT information. You can change/update banking information by clicking the Edit button.
Once your EFT setup is completed, you will receive your commission checks via electronic funds transfer.
