Approximately one year has passed since Cigna and Express Scripts began working together as a combined organization. We strive to deliver what our clients and customers want now, as well as anticipate what they need next. The results of our united focus abound. These include:
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. This upgrade began for new business on January 1, 2020 and, starting February 2020, began to roll out to existing clients upon their individual renewal dates. Many of the enhancements to our integrated pharmacy benefit begin for clients upon this upgrade.
Looking ahead, we are eager to continue efforts to provide more choices, products and innovation for more personalized whole person care. We have set a bold target of reducing total medical costs at or below Consumer Price Index (CPI) by 2021 for our integrated business. To get there, we’re relentlessly focused on improving affordability, predictability and simplicity to continue to transform and improve healthcare for our clients and customers.
