Vice President Mike Pence invited top executives from the largest U.S. health insurers to discuss the response to the coronavirus outbreak on Tuesday, as the White House sought to signal a more muscular effort to stem the outbreak and stock markets again stumbled.

Among the executives invited to attend are Gail Boudreaux, the chief executive of Anthem Inc., UnitedHealth Group Inc. chief executive Dave Wichmann, CVS Health Corp. Executive Vice President Karen Lynch and leaders from Humana Inc., Blue Cross & Blue Shield Association, Centene Corp., and Americas Health Insurance Plans, according to three people familiar with the matter.
