United World: AL, MD, MN, MT, ND, NJ, NM, PA, UT & WY

Commission Changes

This change will also affect commissions on Plans M and N. Mutual of Omaha will have new commission schedules available shortly, but you can expect commissions on all plans to be uniform.

Even with these changes, Mutual of Omaha will continue be a leader in the Medicare Supplement marketplace. That being said, this will open up many new doors to other Medicare Supplement companies that want to offer guarantee issue or limited underwriting plans.
