					Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. Announces Investigation
of HealthSpring, Inc.
October 24, 2011 10:25 AM Eastern Daylight Time 

WILMINGTON, Del.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Rigrodsky & Long, P.A. announces that it is investigating
potential claims against the board of directors of HealthSpring, Inc. (“HealthSpring” or the “Company”) (NYSE:
HS) concerning possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of law related to the Company’s entry into
an agreement to be acquired by Cigna Corporation (“Cigna”) in a transaction with an approximate value of
approximately $3.8 billion.

Under the proposed agreement, HealthSpring shareholders will receive $55.00 per share in cash for every share of
HealthSpring common stock they hold.

The investigation concerns whether HealthSpring’s board of directors adequately shopped the Company to obtain
the best price possible for HealthSpring’s shareholders before entering into the agreement with Cigna. Indeed, as
recent as August 2, 2011, the Company announced better-than-expected quarterly results. Herb Fritch,
HealthSpring’s Chairman and CEO, commented: “We are pleased to report a strong second quarter and first six
months of the year. The continued favorable utilization environment, coupled with continued progress in our quality
and physician engagement strategies, positively impacted results across our Medicare Advantage plans. In addition,
negative trends that impacted our stand-alone prescription drug plans in the first quarter have improved, resulting in a
better than expected PDP MLR. As a result of these factors, among others, we are increasing our earnings per share
guidance for the year.” 

If you own the common stock of HealthSpring and purchased your shares before October 24, 2011, if you have
information or would like to learn more about these claims, or if you wish to discuss these matters or have any
