Cigna temporarily banned from new Medicare plans
USA Today

U.S. regulators have temporarily banned health insurer Cigna from offering certain Medicare plans to new patients after a probe uncovered issues with current offerings.

The insurer disclosed late Thursday in a public filing that the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), had suspended the company from enrolling new customers or marketing plans for Cigna Medicare Advantage and Standalone Prescription Drug Plan Contracts.

In an enforcement letter, CMS accused Cigna of “widespread and systemic failures,” including the denial of health care coverage and prescription drugs to patients who should have received them.
