Cigna Healthcare on Aug. 10 said it is partnering with Virgin Pulse to create an individualized digital health platform for a large swath of its membership — about 11 million lives. The Virgin Pulse platform will allow members to track daily individual variables related to mental, physical and social health, such as exercise, sleep and weight. In addition, “myCigna can connect them to other relevant programs available through their Cigna Healthcare benefits, such as pre-diabetes management or behavioral health services,” based on logged data and prior claims. The technology will be available to select employer group plans effective Jan. 1, 2024. Cigna is currently the fifth-largest insurer in the risk-based employer group market, with 2,218,193 members. It has an additional 13,693,654 enrolled in non-risk self-funded plans.
