NEW YORK (Reuters) – Cigna’s CFO Brian Evanko said the company’s “outpatient dynamic” was impacted by the Change Healthcare hack which disrupted claims during the first quarter of 2024.

The February ransomware attack on the largest U.S. insurer stole a “substantial portion” of personal data from American patients and disrupted provider payments. UnitedHealth’s CEO Andrew Witty said in a May testimony that the hack caused “incredible disruption” across the healthcare system.
