Drug costs affect your employees and their dependents in many ways, but the total cost of care should be more cause for alarm. Cigna Pharmacy uses our connections across benefits and multiple customer touch points to promote total cost savings that consider mind, body and drug.
For the fourth year in a row, Cigna's Value of Integration study demonstrates that connecting medical, pharmacy and behavioral benefits increases customer engagement, supports the whole person and reduces total medical costs.
As of May 1, 2020, Express Scripts®, a Cigna company, began offering Parachute RxSM. This temporary new drug savings program helps ensure that Americans who are uninsured continue to stay adherent to their prescription medications during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our top priority is to protect the health and well-being of our clients, customers and our employees and their families. We have put together resources, information, and helpful links on Cigna.com to keep you up-to-date and informed.
As part of our ongoing commitment to provide affordable and quality health care coverage, we regularly review and update our formularies. We act on research findings gleaned from integrated benefits and new drugs to market, such as biosimilars and other opportunities to reduce drug spend and improve health.
Approximately one year has passed since Cigna and Express Scripts began working together as a combined organization. A significant milestone in our combination with Express Scripts is an upgrade to our pharmacy claim-processing platform – moving to our proprietary Express Scripts claim engine.
Effective in 2020, upon a client’s next renewal, coverage of vaccines will be available under the pharmacy benefit. Previously, vaccines were typically available only through the medical benefit. Now, customers can simply visit an in-network pharmacy, show their prescription ID card, and request a flu shot or other covered vaccine.
SafeGuardRx for Cigna is a program that helps limit our clients’ financial exposure, driving down costs for certain complex, costly conditions. These include oncology, inflammatory conditions, multiple sclerosis and other rare conditions.

Health benefit plans vary, but in general to be eligible for coverage a drug must be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), prescribed by a health care professional, purchased from a licensed pharmacy and medically necessary. Some plans require you to use an in-network pharmacy for prescriptions to be covered. Coverage is subject to any plan deductible, copayment and/or coinsurance requirements. Product availability may vary by location and plan type and is subject to change. All group health insurance policies and health benefit plans contain exclusions and limitations. For costs and details of coverage, contact a Cigna representative. Group medical and pharmacy plans are insured and/or administered by Cigna Health and Life Insurance Company or its affiliates.
