HealthSpring Review

HealthSpring may have officially stopped operating as a solo entity after the acquisition by Cigna in 2011, but the company still manages existing policies with the help of Cigna. HealthSpring’s new parent company is the 5th largest health insurance provider, which lends some financial stability and credibility to HealthSpring’s name and business operations.
