Cigna’s health services business line will be rebranded and launched as Evernorth, which will also include several other segments, including pharmacy benefit manager Express Scripts and specialty pharmacy Accredo. Healthy Ways to Work, a suite of tools for health plans and employers to manage their employees’ needs amid COVID-19, will be the first solutions to launch under Evernorth. Existing solutions such as Embarc Benefit Protection—which increases access to high-cost gene therapies—will also relaunch under the Evernorth branding.
Tim Wentworth, CEO of Evernorth, said,”Evernorth represents our belief that health is the starting point of human progress and potential,” said Wentworth in a statement. “It builds on our leading capabilities, solutions, and partnerships in new and expanded ways that set us apart. Our philosophy and unbiased approach give us the ability to address health care challenges from a fragmented system and provide our clients with more choice. Evernorth will deliver innovative solutions not available anywhere else.” Read more here.
