Cigna Corporation (NYSE: CI), through its global expatriate business segment - Cigna Global Health Benefits, today announces the expansion of their partnership with African-based insurer, the Hollard Insurance Group (Hollard).

This partnership responds to the need for a fully compliant health insurance option in sub-Saharan Africa with the creation of a new product called Hollard Cigna Health. The legal requirements of globally mobile staff as well as regional expats and key local nationals from corporations with operations in the region are met with this carefully tailored solution.

With Cigna’s expertise in global health solutions and Hollard’s brand recognition and local knowledge of the markets in Africa, clients are set to benefit from their unified experience and capabilities. The partnership utilises its ISO-certified procedures and is able to cater to national demand across the region with a single health insurance product.

Brooks Mparutsa, CEO Hollard International, commented on the partnership, “Each African market has its own unique legislative demands, its own history and its own expectations. This is why it’s important to have local knowledge – and it is part of the reason why our recognised presence in Africa offers tremendous added value. We believe that adding this understanding and our unique, market-related partnership approach to Cigna’s extensive global experience in health care insurance and medical claims administration creates an exciting proposition for entities throughout sub-Saharan Africa.”

David Maltby, President, Cigna Global Health Benefits commented, “Transparency and simplicity play a vital role in our mission to support the health, well-being and sense of security of the people we serve. Through this broadened partnership with Hollard, we are now able to extend Cigna’s service, bringing high quality and affordable health care to our clients, customers and partners in Africa.
