Cigna International expands health care network in Brazil

CIGNA logo

Cigna International, the largest provider of expatriate benefits in the world, has expanded its health care network with the addition of CignaLinks Brazil. It has established a network alliance partnership with Gama Saude that offers access to more than 20,000 doctors, hospitals, and health care professionals in Brazil.


CignaLinks is a unique program developed to simplify the complex administration of health care payment and claims for globally mobile employees and their families. At the same time, it addresses local compliance issues in countries where government regulations may affect benefit offerings and access to care.


In Brazil, customers will have access to Gama Saude, one of the largest networks of doctors and hospitals. The partnership with Gama Saude gives it the opportunity to integrate global coverage with administrative services and health care facilities in Brazil. Customers benefit directly from the new network relationship by receiving substantial discounts when accessing the local network for care and by reducing their out-of-pocket costs at the time care is delivered.
