Cigna Partners with Annum Health to Reduce Alcohol Consumption
Cigna is collaborating with Annum Health to offer digital health support to help people reduce alcohol consumption.
Annum program participants will use a digital app and have a personal support team comprised of health coaches, physicians and licensed therapists to help each individual meet their goals. Through the year-long program, participants are able to address risky alcohol consumption and become empowered to make sustainable changes to drinking habits. In addition, Annum will work with Cigna and its employer clients to design culturally-appropriate awareness campaigns to encourage anonymous self-identification and engagement.
“Our collaboration with Cigna marks the first time we will pilot Annum’s remotely-delivered approach to reducing alcohol consumption with a national health services company. Cigna is our ideal partner because of our shared passion for improving customers’ access to quality care.” – Cofounder and CEO of Annum Health, Michael Laskoff.
Established in 2016, the company has raised $6.4m in funding from several backers including AXA Venture Partners.
Bottom Line: Cigna is the first health service company to pilot Annum Health’s private coaching and clinician-led support program with employer clients.
