Cigna announcement from 6/3/21:
While telemedicine visits have been an option for patients for several years, 2020 saw virtual appointments increase by more than 50 percent. While COVID-19 is a big cause of such a dramatic increase, it’s safe to say virtual care is a comfortable and convenient option that is preferable for many patients even as we move out of the pandemic.
As Cigna works to make health care simple, affordable and predictable, aligning with a virtual care company is a logical step.
We’re excited that MDLIVE is becoming part of our team here at Cigna. With this acquisition we are combining our shared vision and passion for changing health care for the better.
MDLIVE is a great choice for your customers to receive 24/7 access to care for more than 80 minor medical conditions from the comfort of their own homes. Plus, the costs for your customers associated with using telemedicine versus an urgent care clinic for these minor issues make virtual visits an even better option!
We are very excited to welcome MDLIVE to our team here at Cigna. Stay tuned for more information as we integrate the MDLIVE team into our Cigna family and look to add more virtual services soon.
If you have any questions about the acquisition, please contact your CSM representative.
