As part of the Vaccine Community Connectors program, health insurers such as the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association will help to identify people who qualify for the initiative, educate these individuals about the "safety, efficacy, and value" of COVID-19 vaccines, help them schedule appointments to get the vaccine, and then arrange transportation, according to a statement put out by the BCBS and America's Health Insurance Plans, the trade group for most of the large health insurers in the U.S. "Their goal again is to get 2 million of the most vulnerable seniors vaccinated as soon as possible," Andy Slavitt, a White House senior advisor for the nation's COVID-19 response, said Wednesday during a press briefing.

Cigna adjusted profit falls below expectations, but revenue beatsCigna Corp. reported Thursday a fourth-quarter adjusted profit that fell below expectations, while revenue rose above forecasts. The health services and insurance company's stock was still inactive in premarket trading. Net income rose to $4.14 billion, or $11.45 a share, from $977 million, or $2.60 a share, in the year-ago period. Excluding non-recurring items, such as gains from the sale of assets, adjusted earnings per share fell to $3.51 from $4.31, missing the FactSet consensus of $3.68. Total revenue rose 9.1% to $41.71 billion, topping the FactSet consensus of $39.96 billion, as pharmacy revenue and premiums both grew more than forecast. Total pharmacy customers at the end of 2020 rose 17.5% to 89.2 million, while total medical customers fell 2.8% to 16.7 million. "Our fourth quarter results were in line with expectations, as we continued to make investments in our customers, capabilities, and co-workers - all while covering elevated COVID-related costs," said Chief Executive David Cordani. The stock has gained 4.2% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has advanced 11.2%.
