Cigna is planning to expand its Medicare Advantage footprint by 14% next year, according to Forbes. The insurer plans to enter 37 new counties with individual HMO plans, and 43 new counties with individual PPO M/A plans in 2020. “We see tremendous growth opportunity in M/A, starting in 2020,” CEO David Cordani said. This comes on the heels of Centene announcing its plans to expand into 100 new counties and enter a new state – Nevada – to expand M/A to seniors in 2020. Cigna now joins a group of well-known health plans looking to capitalize on new rules that allow M/A plans to offer more benefits to seniors. Cigna’s M/A business had 440,000 members at the end of Q2, significantly fewer than rivals such as Humana, UnitedHealth and Aetna.
