Cigna-Healthspring Sanctions Lifted as of June 16, 2017



Great news for all you Cigna-Healthspring contracted agents out there: the Cigna-Healthspring Sanctions have been lifted!

As of Friday, June 16, 2017, Cigna-Healthspring has returned to active marketing and enrollment.

What does this mean for you?

Any Cigna-Healthspring Medicare Advantage Plans and Part D prescription drug plans can be sold for effective dates on or after July 1, 2017.

How do I get started?

To be ready to sell or receive sales materials, you will have to go thru a CMS required Certification Refresher Course. If you do not complete this course, you will not be able to pick up sales materials, and you will not get paid on any new sales.

What about Sales Materials for the rest of this year?

Contact your local sales manager for sales materials after you complete the refresher course.  (If you live in AZ and are contracted with RBI, then you would let us know if you want materials).

Here are a few FAQ’s for your reference:

  • The CMS certification is separate from any product certifications you’ve already completed, and separate from the 2018 product certifications.
  • If you would like to sell 2018 Cigna-Healthspring MA plans, or PDP plans, you would still need to complete the 2018 certifications that will be released in the next couple of months.
  • The CMS Refresher Certification can be found on the Cigna-Healthspring Producers website, the same as you would find any other Cigna product certifications.
  • Cigna is now a 4.5 Star Plan, so it can only be sold outside of Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) to people who have a Special Enrollment Period (SEP). Legally Cigna can’t have a 5 star plan as they come out of sanctions.
