  • Cigna Connect offers structured, standardised support with a directional care approach to help cut costs 

LONDON – 7th October 2022: Global health service company, Cigna Europe, has today further demonstrated its support for employers as it launches Cigna Connect – doubling its previous offering with three new and affordable healthcare packages. 

The new solution offers employers, whether they have two, five or five hundred employees who travel abroad for work, a choice of three comprehensive plans that cover a wide range of specific, individual needs, designed to support employees abroad access the right care at the right cost, without compromising on quality. 

Using directional care, Cigna Connect features a unique ‘virtual first’ approach, ensuring users are guided by Cigna’s expert clinical team towards the best healthcare outcome - in the most cost-effective way. While open access to Cigna’s global network, that includes 1.5m+ providers, clinics and facilities offers freedom of choice to support users wherever they are in the world, ensuring a truly personalised healthcare experience. 

With 1 in 5 (22%) of global employees having had their medical treatment cancelled or delayed – with these delays at least three months long on average2, the new offering increases the choices available for employers looking for all encompassing healthcare - while supporting them with the ever-evolving world of work, budgetary pressures, increased medical inflation costs and the ongoing cost of living crisis. It comes as Cigna’s research reveals almost two thirds (65%) of globally mobile employees say that access to care is ‘very important’ to them, yet less than a third (28%) of employers provide sufficient healthcare plans2

Arjan Toor, CEO, Cigna Europe, said: “Everyone in the workforce deserves access to high-quality healthcare and as priorities and circumstances change, healthcare needs to adapt. Our Global Healthcare Survey showed an increasing need for more affordable propositions; however we know that one size doesn’t fit all. We’ve introduced a bold new approach to global healthcare with individual needs in mind, developing a suite of products to suit any budget.  

“Quality of service remains a priority for us, and Cigna Connect maintains Cigna quality at a more affordable price point, allowing employers to put the Whole Health of their employees first.”
