Cigna Lawsuit Against Former Express Scripts President Sheds Light on Non-Competes

Cigna Corp. filed a lawsuit on Jan. 26 against Amy Bricker, the former president of the company’s Express Scripts PBM, and CVS Health Corp., which hired Bricker last month to a C-suite position.

The complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri alleges that Bricker should not be allowed to join CVS due to a non-compete agreement that “prohibits her from working for any Cigna competitor.” It came three weeks after the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) proposed a rule that would ban employers from imposing non-compete agreements and as some states look more closely at such arrangements.
