News & Updates
Earlier today, Anthem Blue Cross' parent company announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Cigna Corporation, under which Anthem's parent company will acquire Cigna in a cash and stock transaction. This transaction will accelerate the realization of Anthem's vision to be America’s valued health partner.
The combined company will offer a broader spectrum of personally relevant, high-quality, high-value products and services that exceed consumer expectations, and ensure as many consumers as possible have access to quality, affordable health care. Anthem's best-in-class commercial businesses would be supplemented by Cigna’s complementary medical and specialty capabilities to serve large national as well as local employers, allowing the sharing and integration of innovative employer solutions across this important customer base.
No company will be better positioned to compete and apply the insights and access to a broad network and dedicated local presence to address the health care challenges of the increasingly diverse segments, membership and communities Anthem serves.
Anthem is very excited about the opportunities this combination would create, and look forward to sharing more information with you in the future.
It’s important to note that this announcement does not alter Anthem's current contractual relationships and they will continue to operate “business as usual.” Anthem would like to thank you for your ongoing support and partnership.
