Yesterday, Cigna announced its 2014 Medicare health plan offerings, including a wide range of Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare Part D prescription drug plans, as well as supplemental Medicare insurance and special needs plans. All plans offer extra benefits not covered under Original Medicare and are designed to help customers better manage their health and limit out-of-pocket medical expenses.
“We know that health care is not one-size-fits-all. That’s why our 2014 health care plans offer products that deliver more consumer choices to support healthy aging while meeting customers’ individual health care and budget needs,” said Herb Fritch, president of Cigna-HealthSpring, Cigna’s seniors business unit. “Our coordinated team approach to care focuses on prevention to proactively meet each person’s health care needs and deliver on the triple aim of improved health, affordability and patient experience.”
Medicare is a critical source of health care for millions of Americans and Cigna’s Medicare products offer customers affordable choices customized to meet their needs. Last year, Cigna made strategic acquisitions to expand its presence in the rapidly growing seniors market with industry leaders Great American Supplemental Benefits (now Cigna Supplemental Benefits) and HealthSpring (now Cigna-HealthSpring), making it the sixth largest company in the Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plan markets. The 2014 enrollment season marks the first year the Cigna brand has gone to market with such comprehensive consumer choices.
Medicare beneficiaries can enroll in Cigna 2014 Medicare plans during the annual enrollment period, which begins October 15, 2013 and ends December 7, 2013. For most Medicare beneficiaries, this is the one time of year they can make changes to their Medicare coverage.
