CHLIC transition beginning for policyholders in Pennsylvania

May 8, 2024

Announcing the CHLIC transition in Pennsylvania

What you and your customers need to know.

The CHLIC transition is about to begin in Pennsylvania (PA). As referenced in this email, Cigna Healthcare Supplemental Benefits will mail Notice of Transfer packets to Cigna Health and Life Insurance Company (CHLIC) Medicare Supplement insurance policyholders; in these states, this will occur beginning May 16.

What this means to you

Once Cigna have documented consent, they will begin the policy transfer process for CHLIC policyholders who live in PA to MedCo Containment Life Insurance Company (MCLIC). As they will maintain all Agent of Record information with those policies, and as CHLIC is no longer available for sale in this state, this aspect of the CHLIC transition should be of minimal impact to you.

What this means for your customers

  • Notification: The Notice of Transfer packets provide policyholders with information about the transition, including a mail-in response card to consent to or reject it. Please note: You may not provide consent on behalf of a policyholder but may encourage them to review their packet and return their consent response to ensure that it is recorded.
  • Consent period: In PA, policyholders have 90 days to consent to or reject the transition. If no response is received after 60 days, Cigna will issue a second notice. No response after 90 days is considered deemed consent.
  • Transfer: When a policyholder’s consent response is received, they will store it and move their policy into a transfer queue. Once a policy has transferred from CHLIC to MCLIC, the policyholder will receive a Certificate of Assumption as a record of the transfer, and a new MCLIC ID card. There will be no interruption to service or changes in policy terms. Consent processing times may vary - watch for updates as referenced below.

Please note: Policyholder consent requirements are based on applicable regulations for the state of residence (vs. the state of policy issuance), to afford consumer protections of that state regarding consent to the transfer.

Need more information?

There has been an established CHLIC transition broker information resource page just for you, containing:

  • FAQs, including the latest on consent processing timelines,
  • on-demand trainings,
  • and other transition updates, including sample state policyholder notices as issued.
