Cigna Renews Relationship With Argus Health For Pharmacy Solutions

Share:

Argus Health Systems, a DST (NYSE: DST) company providing pharmacy solutions and health outcomes optimization to healthcare organizations, today announced it has renewed its relationship with Cigna to provide certain pharmacy solutions services.

The new multi-year contract, which provides administrative management of pharmacy claims for millions of Cigna's commercial plan members currently serviced by Argus, will be effective January 1, 2016.

"We've worked hard to align our solutions with the unique complexities of the healthcare market," says Marc Palmer, President and Chief Operating Officer of Argus Health. "We are excited to renew our relationship with Cigna and help support its ongoing efforts to drive improved affordability and better health outcomes for clients and customers."

"Cigna has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Argus because the company has consistently demonstrated its understanding of our business needs as well as the desire of our clients and customers for a predictable operating platform. This also provides flexibility to develop new capabilities to meet or exceed marketplace demands," said Chris Hocevar, President, Cigna Pharmacy Management and Select Segment.

The new agreement with Cigna follows Argus' announcement in June that it had renewed its contract with Humana Inc. for pharmacy solutions and services.

Argus has been making significant investment in its clinical, network, and analytic capabilities. With a focus on achieving the best possible clinical, financial, and operational outcomes for its clients, Argus works to address the wide range of complexities facing healthcare organizations today.

"We made a strategic decision to transform Argus into something it had never been before, something that the healthcare market needs for its future," says Palmer. "It is a new era for healthcare and it is a new era for Argus."
