CIGNA International Expands Regional Network to China and Macau


CLAYMONT, Del.- CIGNA (NYSE: CI) today introduced expanded regional access to health care facilities in China and Macau through its international CIGNALinks® program. Expatriates now have access to a range of doctors, hospitals, and clinics that have met CIGNA International’s quality standards in those countries.

Expatriates covered by CIGNA International’s CIGNALinks program in the region encompassing Hong Kong, China, Macau and Taiwan can now receive discounts when visiting United Family Hospitals in Beijing and Shanghai as well as a selection of clinics in Macau. United Family Hospitals are full-service medical centers with private rooms and more than 18 specialties ranging from oncology to maternity. The United Family Hospitals and Clinics recently earned an accreditation from the Joint Commission International, the worldwide leader in improving quality of health care.

“Specialists come from all over the world to practice at United Family Hospitals, which are known for their excellent staff that includes multilingual, expatriate doctors. We are pleased to be able to offer discounts to care at such popular health facilities that provide a high standard of health care in the region,” said Annie Kung, a CIGNALinks relationship manager located in Hong Kong.

CIGNA continues to see an increase in the expatriate population in Macau, where the city’s tourism and gambling industries are growing. By opening up the CIGNALinks network to several clinics and hospitals within the city, CIGNA is providing more options to meet the health care needs of expatriates in the area.

Through alliances with local health care companies, CIGNALinks programs ensure expatriates have access to care in countries and regions where government regulations or tax implications may present barriers to care. CIGNALinks programs are currently available in the United Kingdom, Spain, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Macau, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Kuwait.

CIGNA International has a far-reaching network of more than 90,000 health care facilities in virtually every country in the world.
