CIGNA Corporation (NYSE: CI) is the result of a 1982 merger between The Insurance Company of North America (INA) and Connecticut General. After the merger, the company refocused its product lines to position itself as a unified provider of managed healthcare by selling its individual insurance products division and withdrawing from the personal property/casualty business to focus on small and midsized commercial clients in the United States. In 1990, the company acquired EQUICOR (now AXA Equitable Life Insurance).
Today, Cigna offers healthcare options to individuals and large businesses throughout the United States. The company’s insurance products include group accident, life, and disability insurance as well as health, vision, and dental coverage. In recent years, Cigna began to expand its product lines, offering options such as health savings products to its customers, in order to combat the rising costs of healthcare and declining medical membership.
However, rising healthcare costs and internal inefficiencies have plagued the company, causing a decline in medical membership. To help alleviate these problems, the insurer cut 3,000 jobs, consolidating its service operations in its employee health, life, and disability benefit units.
