Wray will be responsible for Cigna's network development, including physician,
facility and ancillary contracting; rate negotiations; and collaborative
accountable care arrangements. Wray’s appointment comes at a time when the
health care delivery system, including physician groups and hospital systems,
is rapidly consolidating and integrating. Wray will further Cigna's delivery
system collaboration opportunities in the company’s priority markets to
accelerate client and customer growth.

Prior to joining Cigna, Wray held positions with Dignity Health (formerly

for payer strategy and growth, and senior vice president for managed care. He
was responsible for a full range of managed care activities worth more than $4
billion in contracted revenue, and he oversaw four affiliated health plans
with nearly 600,000 enrolled individuals.

“John Wray is a seasoned health care executive with strong organizational and
leadership skills,” said Dr. Muney. “His experience with accountable care
organizations will be an asset to Cigna as we continue to expand our
collaborative accountable care initiatives, while his experience leading
complex organizations will help us deploy Cigna’s talent in ways that will
strengthen the company. I’m delighted to welcome John to my leadership team.”

Previously, Wray also served as senior vice president for managed care at
MedPartners, Inc., and vice president and general counsel at Mullikin Medical
Centers, both in Long Beach, Calif. He has also held leadership positions with
Affiliated Medical Enterprises, Travelers Health Network, and Rutan and Tucker
LLP.

Wray holds bachelor’s degrees in both political science and sociology, as well

related organizations, including the Integrated Healthcare Association, and
