Cigna Well being Appoints John J. Webb As Market President Of West Tennessee/Arkansas/Mississippi
Healthcare provider Cigna announced the appointment of John J. Webb as market president for West Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi. Webb will be responsible for overseeing more than 500 plan employees at employer customers. He will lead the team, made up of health professionals and community partners, to develop new innovative solutions to improve customer relationships.
“I am excited to bring a combination of corporate experience and venture capital expertise in applying creativity, agility and innovation to improve the health and wellbeing of the people we serve in the local market,” said Webb in one Email interview with BLACK COMPANY.
“Cigna is working to make healthcare more affordable, predictable and easier. In doing so, we want to expand the range of health plan options we have because of our close relationships with health care providers. This includes looking after city and suburban customers, ”says Webb.
Webb says he wants to improve customer service for his region and support local partners through various initiatives. “Our focus is not just on the customers and customers we serve. Cigna is committed to improving the health, wellbeing and peace of mind in the communities where we live, work and play,” said Webb. “That’s why we support the efforts of local partners addressing health justice, food insecurity, opioid addiction, and other issues such as the Orange Mound Community Center in Memphis, the Matt Adams Foundation in Arkansas, and many others.”
In the midst of the spread of COVID-19 or the novel coronavirus pandemic, Web aims to support its Memphis and surrounding community with solutions that will help customers stay afloat and get help during the public health crisis. “To help our customers through the COVID-19 crisis, Cigna immediately took a number of steps, such as: For example, foregoing expenses for tests and treatments as well as providing resources and new telemedicine options for our customers, ”says Webb.
“As we’ve seen minorities disproportionately affected by COVID-19, I’m also proud that Cigna is launching a loyalty program in Memphis and selected cities to address health disparities in color communities. By listening and being present in the local market here, I have the opportunity to develop solutions to health inequalities and chronic disease management, ”continued Webb.
“Our goal is to identify conditions early while they are preventable and to better monitor potential problems for certain populations in the three states my team covers. To achieve this, we will go to great lengths to improve health literacy across the region and engage people in their health and wellbeing. “
