Cigna Wins EValue8 Performance Award

Global health service company Cigna (NYSE:CI) is pleased to announce it has been awarded the eValue8 TM Performance Award for the Northeast area for 2012 by the Northeast Business Group on Health.

The Northeast Business Group on Health is a not-for-profit coalition of more than 150 employers, providers, insurers and other organizations working together to improve the quality and reduce the cost of health care in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Cigna was tops among the major carriers measured in the Northeast area, based on eValue8, a nationally recognized health care purchasing and quality improvement assessment process developed by the National Business Coalition on Health.

“Cigna is dedicated to helping people improve their health, well-being and sense of security,” said Cigna’s Ann Asbaty, chief operating officer, National Accounts. “We are proud to be recognized as a leader in health plan performance by an organization focused on improving the quality while reducing the cost of health care.”

The selection criteria includes information about how health service providers manage critical processes that control costs, reduce and eliminate waste, ensure patient safety, close gaps in care, and improve health and health care. Plans and purchasers receive objective scores enabling comparison of plans against regional and national benchmarks and a road map for improvement.

Cigna earned the highest overall total score in the seven categories used to assess health plan performance including consumer engagement, plan profile, provider measurement, pharmaceutical management, prevention and health promotion, chronic disease management and behavioral health.

“We are thrilled to recognize and honor Cigna for providing outstanding health care value to employers and other purchasers in the Northeast,” said Laurel Pickering, president and CEO, Northeast Business Group on Health. “Cigna’s commitment to working with employers is strong and clearly demonstrates their dedication to helping transform the health care system and improve the health of their customers. We congratulate Cigna on earning this award.”
