Cigna Disability Insurance Claims Attorneys
Cigna Corp. is a Connecticut-based global health service company that provides health, pharmacy, dental, and supplemental insurance, as well as Medicare, plans to individuals and businesses. Cigna was the result of a 1982 merger of the Connecticut General Life Insurance Company (CG) and INA Corporation.
In January 2011, the California Nurses Association reported that Cigna denied 39.6 percent of its claims in the first three quarters of 2010, a 5.3 percent increase from its 2009 rejection rate. On May 22, 2013, the Hartford Courant reported that Cigna was setting aside $77 million to cover potential claim payments as part of a settlement with insurance regulators in California, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania after regulators claimed Cigna denied initial claims and ongoing claims that should have qualified for payment.
In 2020, Cigna decided to move its focus towards away from life and disability claims and sold its group life and disability insurance unit to New York Life Insurance Company for 6.3 billion dollars.
In 2021, New York Life finalized its acquisition of Cigna. If you or your loved one previously had a disability claim through Cigna, it is now managed by New York Life. Please click here for more information about New York Life.
