Cigna Global Health Benefits Launches Crisis Assistance Plus - a Solution for Globally Mobile Customers in an Unpredictable World

WILMINGTON, Del., 23 May, 2017 - Cigna Corporation (NYSE: CI), through its globally mobile business segment, Cigna Global Health Benefits ® , today announces the launch of their newest solution, Crisis Assistance Plus TM (CAP), an enhancement to their suite of global health care products.

This solution allows for a worldwide, comprehensive crisis assistance program, powered by FocusPoint International®, and responds to the unique needs of Cigna’s globally mobile customers who currently do not have a program in place today under our 2-20 expat products and our MBA product for international business travellers. It helps promote peace of mind by providing services that include time-sensitive advice and coordinated in-country crisis assistance, as well as political evacuation services for nine different risks that impact, or have the potential to impact, them while on assignment or traveling on international business. In the event of a covered event, the CAP program provides customers and their covered dependents immediate access to rapid response teams and dedicated CAP managers who are deployed globally within 24 hours, experienced security personnel for field rescue, shelter in place and ground evacuations, and highly experienced kidnap-for-ransom and extortion-response specialists.

From natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis and hurricanes, to acts of terrorism, blackmail or extortion, hijacking and other violent crimes, CAP provides coverage for services of up to $250,000 per covered person, per incident. This unique and comprehensive service is included as a value added benefit and reinforces Cigna’s commitment to its customers and reputation in the marketplace as a leader in global health benefits.

Heather Schleeweis, Product Manager for North America, commented, “CAP is not only a market differentiator for Cigna, it also directly supports our mission of helping individuals improve their health, well-being and sense of security. Now more than ever, security threats are a concern for today’s global travellers. CAP enables us to provide our customers with comprehensive global health benefits that include peace of mind.”
