BLOOMFIELD, Conn., January 16, 2013 - On February 4, 2013, Cigna will begin sales of its new Medicare Supplement Plans insured by American Retirement Life Insurance Company. The program will be marketed and administered through Cigna's Supplemental Benefits division in Austin, Texas. The new Medigap plans have been filed for approval with the states and are already approved in AL, IA, NM, OK & SD. Medicare Supplement plans help America's seniors cover some of their health care costs, including deductibles and coinsurance payments, not covered by Medicare Part A or Part B.
"Traditional Medicare includes cost sharing and benefit limitations that can result in significant and unlimited out-of-pocket expenses. Medicare Supplement plans are designed to assist seniors in covering those unexpected costs and provide stability in their out of pocket health care expenses. These new plans are competitively priced and policyholders, applicants and distribution partners should also expect the same first class level of service they have enjoyed with our companies for many years," said Brad Wolfram, Divisional President, Cigna Supplemental Benefits.
Cigna Supplemental Benefits offers a wide array of supplemental health products to help protect working age and senior marketplace consumers.
