With podcasts on Apple’s iTunes library, CIGNA hopes to ease the transition to expatriate life and help prepare expatriates for the challenges they may face when accessing health care in other countries. Through a new arrangement with CIGNA International Expatriate Benefits (CIEB), a comprehensive podcast library is downloadable from iTunes or from CIEB’s public Web site. The podcasts contain health, wellness and benefits information for employees on international assignments and business travelers.

Available podcast topics include practical information such as getting ready for an overseas assignment, managing weight while on assignment, and using online expert medical second opinion services.

“Using iTunes as well as other innovative communication channels and technologies demonstrates our commitment to continually enhancing the expatriate experience around the world and meeting the service needs of expatriates, business travelers and employers,” says Kenneth Vaughan, SVP of CIEB.
