Cigna joins UnitedHealthcare & Aetna; plans to exit Georgia exchange in 2017: 4 notes

Starting next year, Cigna will stop offering Georgians coverage through the state's Affordable Care Act exchange, according to 90.1 Wabe.

Here are four notes:

1. Aetna and UnitedHealthcare are also not offering plans in the state's ACA exchange in 2017.

2. With Cigna's departure, Georgia will only have six payers offering coverage on the exchange.

3. Blue Cross Blue Shield is the only payer offering plans in every Georgia county in 2017.

4. In 2016, nine payers offered coverage on the exchanges.

In a statement, a spokesperson said, "Cigna is participating in selected public exchanges where we can best support quality, affordable options for our customers. In this case, we haven't yet defined the most appropriate products that provide this combination and that would be competitive in the Georgia public marketplace."
