NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthLeaders-InterStudy, a leading provider of managed care market intelligence, reports that while CIGNA plans to demonstrate that it can grow organically by competing for local government contracts, mergers and acquisitions are also part of its strategy to grow its medical benefit membership.
According to the recent National MCO Analyzer: CIGNA, Inc., acquisitions have allowed CIGNA to gain new product lines such as voluntary, limited benefit and low-cost health plans. Furthermore, adding Kronos Optimal Health to its portfolio this year has expanded the amount of health coaches, health education and lifestyle management programs to its offerings.
"CIGNA is looking for acquisitions that complement its consumer engagement strategy and robust wellness programs, similar to its purchase of Kronos Optimal Health in February 2010," said HealthLeaders-InterStudy Product Director Jane DuBose. "With the ability to customize benefit plans and demonstrate through its own research how wellness and health management programs pay off, this is one area where CIGNA can distinguish itself from other national carriers."
In addition to providing detailed analysis of how CIGNA is poised to expand, the National MCO Analyzer: CIGNA, Inc. report also provides information on CIGNA's:
- Markets, products, benefits and enrollment trends
- Information on contracts with government and state entities
- A detailed SWOT analysis and a look ahead
