Ohio Department of Insurance issues ruling prohibiting unsolicited contact for Medicare supplement (Medigap) sales

Here is a copy of the draft ruling. While this document clearly states “draft”, I’ve now seen this from several insurance companies as final rule making (here is one example).
Looking at section D2 on page 2, Ohio DOI now prohibits “any unsolicited contact with a medicare-eligible person” and goes on to give examples (email, telephone, door to door, etc.).
This appears to rather closely follow the CMS regulations with regard to unsolicited contact for Part D and Medicare advantage. The prohibition appears to be specific to Medicare supplement and doesn’t appear to apply to other life and health products (long term care, life insurance and annuities).
