Insurance companies building plans for China's insurance!
Combine those tidal economic trends and you can gain a better understanding why big U.S. health insurance companies such as Aetna, Cigna, UnitedHealth Group, and WellPoint have been following up on their traditional offerings for Americans working abroad by blazing trails directly into new overseas markets. And faced with some motivating economic trends in the United States insurance market, some of the best financed health plans are pursuing a checkerboard strategy in building up networks and membership in key regions around the globe. UnitedHealth, for example, now boasts of operations in 17 countries beyond U.S. borders.
