Every player across the system is viewed as a potential partner with whom it can build solutions or who can benefit from its solutions.

A number of newly developed products and solutions demonstrate the value that Evernorth delivers when it brings together and coordinates powerful capabilities – fueled by data and analytics – to address critical client needs. For example, Evernorth offers Healthy Ways to Work, a broad suite of solutions to help health plans and employers move forward by addressing the unique challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Evernorth also offers a new comprehensive fertility solution, FamilyPathSM to reduce avoidable costs, provide holistic care coordination, and deliver more flexible options for individuals.

Evernorth solutions also includes Embarc Benefit ProtectionSM, which ensures access to high-cost gene therapies for those who need it most, and inMyndSM,a connected solution that helps clients and customers better recognize, treat, and support mental health conditions.

Evernorth’s relentless drive for innovation, together with additional partnerships, will result in even more solutions for the benefit of its clients and customers.
