Cigna Return to Work and Achilles
Teaming up to help you get back to work and live your best life
We know that helping you return to work, when possible, is only one step in helping you live your best life. Rebuilding your confidence, self-esteem and mental and physical stamina is just as important.
Through our unique partnership with Achilles International, we’re happy to bring you new tools and resources to help you get healthier and happier and be at your personal best.
And when you participate in our Achilles program, you’ll have the chance to run, walk, or roll alongside an inspiring group of disabled athletes competing around the globe. People like you who know that with a positive attitude, and a helpful support team behind you, no challenge is too great.
Get Healthy. Get Happy.
The way we see it, when you’re feeling healthy – mind and body – you have the strength and confidence to be 100% you.
To help you get up, get out and move, use one of the three different levels of exercise programs, along with a series of exercise videos that encourages you to get moving.
