NASHVILLE, Tenn. – September 23, 2021 – Global health service company Cigna (NYSE:CI) has named Josh Cook president of its Medicare Advantage (MA) plans in Texas and Oklahoma.
“Cigna has been aggressively growing its MA business over the past three years, adding geography and new plans across the country to serve more people eligible for Medicare,” said Dudley Gerow, vice president for the west region of Cigna's Medicare business. “We’re very pleased to have Josh come on board during such an exciting time to help us to continue this trajectory.”
Cook has been with Cigna since 2012, most recently serving with its CareAllies business, overseeing provider engagement in Dallas, Fort Worth, El Paso and Chicago. He brings more than a decade of health care experience to his new role, including a proven track record of working closely with providers to improve customer health, well-being and peace of mind.
Cook holds a master’s degree in business administration from Southern Methodist University and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Texas A&M University. He resides in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and replaces Gerow following Gerow’s promotion earlier this year.
Expanded Medicare Advantage Offerings
MA plans are growing in popularity with those who qualify for Medicare because they combine Medicare Parts A and B in one convenient plan that often includes Part D drug coverage and additional benefits, such as vision, dental, hearing, transportation preventative care, and fitness benefits, sometimes at no extra cost.
Cigna offers MA plans in a number of Texas locations, including in the Dallas-Fort Worth, El Paso, Houston, Rio Grande Valley and San Antonio areas. In Oklahoma, Cigna offers plans in the Oklahoma City area, including Canadian, Cleveland, Lincoln, Logan, Oklahoma and McClain counties.
