On March 28, 2014, Cigna Corp. (Cigna) announced that via its award-winning Colorectal Cancer Screening Program, the Company intends to reach two million people in 2014 that are due for screening through a combination of targeted online messages and direct mail. According to the Company, approximately 280,000 newly eligible individuals covered by a Cigna medical plan, between the ages of 50 and 64, and whose claims data indicate they have not had a colorectal cancer screening, will receive information in the mail about appropriate colon cancer screening tests, including colonoscopy. Scott Josephs, M.D., Cigna National Medical Officer, stated, "Colorectal cancer is treatable and preventable, especially if detected early, which is why educating customers about screening is so important. We saw a significant increase in the rate of screenings as a result of last year's campaign, and we want that trend to continue in 2014 and beyond."
