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. Beyond that, the program offers a proactive medication adherence coaching service to customers taking diabetic or pulmonary therapies.
We communicate our coaching service to eligible customers via a quarterly mailing. Through this service, Cigna pharmacists (also referred to as medication coaches) are available to talk through topics such as:
• Medication options
• Side effects
• Barriers to medication adherence
• Possible interactions
Our Cigna medication coaches also have access to customers’ medication and medical history. They can connect customers to additional chronic condition coaching at Cigna as well as behavioral health support.
There is no action or additional cost required from clients or customers to launch the SafeGuardRx for Cigna program.
