Cigna launches a new private medical insurance plan

Cigna Healthcare has launched a new private medical insurance (PMI) plan for employers with 150 to 400 employees.

The Smarter Health plan includes a managed care service that provides access to a nurse throughout the course of an employee’s treatment.

In addition, the plan provides the employer with the ability to restrict some cover options to control costs or add additional benefits to enhance the cover available.

Kirsty Jagielko, head of product management at Cigna, said: “We are delighted by the positive response from intermediaries and companies alike on our new product.

“SmarterHealth truly provides a smarter solution for employers – they get a comprehensive plan that’s not only specific to their needs but is backed by our nurse led approach. This means that we are actively involved in managing their healthcare claims and costs. And we do this while helping employees and their families get the most appropriate treatment in the most appropriate setting.”
