Helping to reduce surprise medication costs for our customers

Cigna is committed to helping our customers stay healthy and reduce their health care costs. One of the many ways we achieve our goals is by delivering innovative digital tools and resources for our customers. That’s why we’ve built the new Price a Medication feature on the myCigna® App. This tool gives customers the ability to price and compare their medications across in-network pharmacies, including Cigna Home Delivery PharmacySM.* We’re also encouraging customers to use the tool right from their health care provider’s office. This can help providers identify potential lower-cost alternatives, and eliminate surprise expenses for customers at the pharmacy.

The Price a Medication feature on the myCigna App gives customers the ability to:

  • Compare prices across in-network pharmacies in the area, as well as Cigna Home Delivery Pharmacy*
  • View costs for 30-day and 90-day supplies, depending on what a customer’s plan covers
  • Find out right away if a medication needs approval before the plan will cover it
  • Receive alerts if their plan doesn’t cover a medication and provide covered alternatives, if available
  • See medication prices in a simple map view, with directions to the pharmacy if needed

The myCigna App is available for Cigna customers on Apple® and AndroidTM devices.**
