Cigna Ordered To Stop Selling Health Plans That Use Covered California in Name
California Attorney General Kamala Harris (D) has ordered Cigna to stop selling health plans that use Covered California -- the state's health insurance exchange -- in their names. Last year, Cigna opted out of participating in Covered California, but it has been selling some policies outside of the exchange that are labeled as Covered California plans. A Cigna spokesperson Karen Eldred said that "at the request of the attorney general, and after agreement from Covered California on a revised name, we started implementing the necessary systems and other changes."
