Information on whether California, New York, Texas, and Florida allow the sale of telehealth-only plans and Cigna supplemental insurance plans has been provided in the attached spreadsheet.

Summary

Research Strategy

For this research on telehealth-only and Cigna supplemental insurance, we leveraged the most reputable sources of information available in the public domain, including insurance providers' websites in select states, news articles, and Cigna's website. Using Cigna's website, we were able to identify the states that have Cigna's supplemental insurance. The website revealed that Cigna does not offer supplemental insurance in New York.
Our research could not reveal whether the provided states allowed the selling of Telehealth-only plans. However, we confirmed that California, New York, Texas, and Florida all require insurance providers to reimburse health care providers for telemedicine services. Furthermore, we could not find insurance providers that offered telehealth-only plans in California, New York, Texas, and Florida. Providers in these states, however, offered telehealth plans under other medical plans. However, during our research, we came across Priority Health, which had just recently introduced a telehealth-only plan in Michigan. We, therefore, entered N/A in the corresponding cells of the attached spreadsheet because we could not ascertain whether these states allowed the sale of telehealth-only plans.
