As you may be aware, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) imposed intermediate sanctions against Cigna-HealthSpring. CMS did not create a Special Election Period (SEP) for members, but it is considering requests for an SEP on a case-by-case basis. If Cigna members want to choose another plan, they must call CMS. What happens if Cigna members move to another carrier through 1-800-MEDICARE?
