Health Insurance Cost Solutions for Medium-Size Employers*
Organizations must keep health benefit costs under control in order to stay competitive. We believe healthier people are one of the best ways to do that. When employees are at their best, they can perform better.
Cigna business group health insurance can help give your company a sustainable, competitive edge. With experienced account support teams and personalized health and well-being programs, we can provide you with clinical resources and services that are designed to:
- Improve employee health outcomes
- Reduce employee sick days
- Improve productivity
- Lower benefit costs
Your account support team will help you design an innovative benefit plan that addresses your organization’s needs, to help you and your employees get the maximum value out of your health plan.
Save more by combining Cigna products and services
Our plans work even better together. A 2012 Cigna study showed that organizations can save up to 3%2 on medical costs by combining our full range of health products and services.
In order to maximize your benefit plan, you need an approach that provides a whole-person view. Integrating health management programs enables us to focus on the whole person, so we can be better equipped to encourage and engage employees in improving their health and health spending.
By identifying opportunities for health improvement, it helps us better understand your employees. This can help us create personalized programs that are designed to improve gaps in care and get your employees feeling better and returning to work faster. Our insurance services include: medical, behavioral, life, accident, senior and retiree, international, pharmacy, dental and vision insurance plans.
