BLOOMFIELD, Conn., June 28, 2012 - The Supreme Court has done its important work, but more work remains to provide secure and affordable health care for every American.

Cigna is committed to promoting greater dialogue and collaboration among customers, physicians, and business and policy leaders to help provide peace of mind and better address the health needs of our customers. As part of our ongoing customer support efforts, Cigna has equipped its existing 365-by-24-by-7 call center hotline [1-800-Cigna-24] with a dedicated team to answer questions and respond to any concerns about the Supreme Court ruling; we'll also engage with customers on Facebook and Twitter, and offer detailed information on our website dedicated to explaining reform - www.InformedOnReform.com.

As the global population ages and faces challenges related to chronic health conditions, Cigna believes we can help lead the drive for long-term quality and cost improvements. Cigna will accomplish this by developing innovative customer rewards, industry-leading health and wellness initiatives, and Accountable Care Organization programs which pursue the goals of improved health outcomes, care affordability, physician engagement and patient satisfaction.

Cigna believes it is incumbent on all of us to find common purpose and to work for a health care system that improves patient outcomes, removes costly waste and ensures every American has quality, affordable health care and the opportunity to maintain continuous health care coverage. We will accomplish this by working with health care professionals, legislators and other stakeholders to find the best solutions that provide coverage for all.
