BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee and Cigna met the May 3, 2013 deadline to file to offer plans on Tennessee's federally run health insurance exchange. Cigna is participating in 5 exchanges nationally, 4 of which are federally run.
BlueCross BlueShield indicates it will offer traditional plans, including a PPO and a HSA plan, as well as other unique plan designs. They also indicate they will offer the "E" plan, a new, narrow network plan which will be market specific. For example, Erlanger has been selected to be the sole hospital in Chattanooga's E plan.
Details are not yet available on Cigna's planned offerings.
