News Digest March 2022
A curation of news stories impacting health insurance and brokers, population health management and health tech from last month.
We finally had the confirmation of a big IPMI story that has been rumbling in the background for a quite a while, with the news that Allianz is to acquire all of Aetna International’s non-US business. Meanwhile the reins at the top of Axa Global (health) have changed after a successful 6-year reign.
In the digital health/health services space, especially in the mental arena, we see yet more investment. First up is Cigna’s $450m investment into its venture fund focused on start-ups and digital health. Then we have 2 big acquisitions from Optum and expanded partnerships such as Dacadoo and Swiss RE, and we finish with the listing of the top 10 unicorns in this space.
