The future of healthcare services will be so much more than getting a broken arm fixed inside a Walmart (WMT) .
"You can design your benefits and network to work for you, today others make those decisions for you," Cigna (CI) CEO David Cordani tells TheStreet about where the healthcare industry is headed. Cordani also thinks technology will play a key role in helping people consume services on their own terms.
Cordani and his team at Cigna are banking on its big purchase of PBM Express Scripts (ESRX) assisting in shaping how healthcare services are consumed.
So far so good for Cigna in trying to get its $67 billion Express Scripts (ESRX) transaction passed by the unknown quantity that is the Trump administration.
"Early stages of interaction with the [Trump] administration is positive so far," Cordani said. "We expect the deal to be completed by the end of this year, and are confident the deal will be completed."
Watch Cordani discuss where the company is with regulators on Express Scripts.
