As you may be aware, Cigna and Anthem announced today the agreement to combine and form a global health services company to advance the transformation of health care delivery for consumers.
The combined company will join Anthem’s Blue Cross and Blue Shield footprint in 14 states and Medicaid footprint via its Amerigroup brand in 19 states with Cigna’s broad portfolio of health and protection services in the U.S. and globally. This will result in a comprehensive range of products and services for their full spectrum of customers – individuals, employers and State and Federal governments.
The transaction is expected to close in the second half of 2016, pending the receipt of customary approvals, including certain state regulatory approvals and closing conditions.
USI Insurance Services is monitoring the transaction closely and will continue to work with our partners from both organizations to ensure that high levels of service remain in place for our valued clients.
