Those taking a specialty medication and living with challenging health conditions deserve personalized guidance and support. They need a trained clinician to lean on, who thoroughly understands their condition and medication. Customers with complex conditions who take a specialty medication dispensed by Accredo, a Cigna specialty pharmacy, benefit from specialty medication and condition counseling through Accredo’s Therapeutic Resource Centers (TRCs). Customers receive one-on-one, condition-focused care from specialty-trained pharmacists and nurses.
As part of Cigna's combination with Express Scripts, our current in-house specialty pharmacy will integrate into Accredo. This means that Cigna customers will benefit from the specialty condition counseling of the TRCs in the future.
There are currently 15 TRCs*, each highly focused to support an individual therapy class, like oncology, fertility or immune disorders.
Cigna customers who manage the challenges of a complex condition do not face it alone. Customers taking a specialty medication not dispensed by Accredo will receive this important specialty medication and condition counseling from Cigna specialty condition clinicians.
*Express Scripts Therapeutic Resource Centers include Asthma, Allergies, Cancer, Diabetes, Hemophilia, Hepatitic C, High Blood Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure/Heart Disease, HIV, Immune Deficiency, Inflammatory Conditions, Mental/Neurological Disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, Pulmonary Hypertension, and Osteoporosis.
