The costs of essential medications, like insulin, should not add to a patient’s burden. That’s why we offer the Patient Assurance ProgramSM (PAP). As of January 1, 2021, the program expanded to include Trijardy XR - indicated to treat type 2 diabetes. The drug is a combination pill that contains empagliflozin (Jardiance), linagliptin (Tradjenta), and metformin extended release – three classes of diabetes medications working together to lower blood sugar.
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. If a plan provides coverage for certain prescription drugs with no cost-share, the customer may be required to use an in-network pharmacy to fill the prescription. Out-of-network coverage may be excluded or limited by plan terms. Clients must agree to provide “first dollar coverage” (prior to satisfaction of any applicable plan deductible).
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, review your plan documents or contact a Cigna representative.
