Letter to Cigna Healthcare CEO Re: SSN Privacy Resolution

Some states have passed laws requiring the removal of Social Security numbers (SSNs) from items like health insurance identification cards, and you indicated you are implementing changes to comply with those laws. Regardless of state laws mandating health insurance companies to remove SSNs from health insurance ID cards, we believe that your prompt action to remove these sensitive numbers from items that may be easily lost or stolen is important in curbing identity theft.
