Health Insurance

Cigna

Our Take

Cigna is a bigger player in the group (employer) market than the individual and family market. However, it is still one of the larger and more recognized health insurance companies and provides a variety of plan types and a broad network in its state footprint. Cigna generally provides richer plans with higher premiums for a given level of benefits. Also, with the Anthem-Cigna acquisition, plan offerings may be in flux going forward.

Overall Score

We evaluated this health insurance company using publicly available data on patient care & satisfaction, customer service and costs (premiums) versus similar plans on the market.

Quality & Satisfaction
Based on ratings by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Plan reviews take into account consumer surveys and performance measurements used by more than 90% of America's health plans. Because so many plans collect this data, it is possible to compare plans on an "apples to apples" basis.
Affordability
To calculate the affordability rating we compared the cost of an insurer's silver plan to the average cost of a silver plan in each state. Higher star ratings were awarded to insurers that had plans that were cheaper than the average plan cost in a higher number of states.
