BLOOMFIELD, Conn. – Cigna will expand access and choice to affordable telehealth services for its members in 2017 by adding AMWELL to its existing offering of MDLIVE. “Since Cigna began offering telehealth to customers 10 years ago, we’ve learned a few things about how we can help people benefit from their plans in the ways that matter most: increased access and convenience, choice, care quality and affordability,” said Robert Wijnhoven, Cigna telehealth lead, in a press release. Both AMWELL and MDLIVE operate national networks of board-certified doctors that are able to treat minor medical conditions such as allergies, cold and flu, and sinusitis. Additionally, members who have mental health/substance abuse benefits with Cigna will have the option next year for individual therapy or medication management through video-based services. “We believe the best telehealth makes access to trusted, traditional health care providers more convenient, affordable and timely,” said Dr. Roy Schoenberg, AMWELL CEO and co-founder.
