Expanded Medicare Advantage Offerings
MA plans are growing in popularity with those who qualify for Medicare because they combine Medicare Parts A and B in one convenient plan that often includes Part D drug coverage and additional benefits, such as vision, dental, hearing, transportation preventative care, and fitness benefits, sometimes at no extra cost.
Cigna offers MA plans in most Tennessee counties as well as in 30 counties in Arkansas, primarily in the northern and central parts of that state.
