Cigna, SCAN join forces to offer group retiree Medicare Advantage plans in California


Cigna and California-based SCAN Health Plan have formed an alliance to provide Medicare Advantage plan benefits to employer clients in California, the insurer recently announced. The alliance brings together Cigna's integrated benefit products, consultative approach and single point of contact for employers with SCAN's Medicare advantage products and services. The partnership will provide new products, enhanced care coordination and streamlined benefit administration and seamless employee transition from Cigna to SCAN upon retirement and Medicare eligibility. "Our companies have a common commitment to clinical quality, customer service and engaging with health care professionals to enhance health care delivery. Through this alliance, we can now offer employer groups in California a full suite of benefit capabilities for active employees and retirees," said Chris De Rosa, president of the West region for Cigna. The alliance's Medicare Advantage plan is the existing Employer Group Waiver Plan offered by SCAN, effective Jan. 1, 2016 and beyond. Announcement
