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.
As of October 2019, Cigna completed the third of four waves to move customers with complex conditions to receive their specialty pharmacy services through Accredo, a Cigna specialty pharmacy. This work has involved the collaboration of many teams across Accredo, Express Scripts, Cigna, and Cigna Specialty Pharmacy, working together to gently guide customers through a smooth experience.
As a premier specialty pharmacy, and part of the Express Scripts portfolio of services, Accredo will be Cigna’s preferred specialty pharmacy starting later this year*. This means that customers who use Cigna Specialty Pharmacy today will receive their specialty pharmacy services from Accredo, a Cigna company.
