Truly integrated benefits for improved affordability, predictability, and simplicity.
A better healthcare experience can only come from truly integrated benefits. We have over 30 years of experience and specialized expertise in pharmacy, medical, and behavioral1 – all working together as one team for you.
At Cigna, we start with one clinical platform, across all our benefits, which far surpasses the ability of limited and delayed data feeds. It’s real-time, interwoven into all our benefits for actionable insights, proactive and timely customer engagement, and provider collaboration resulting in real impact. This delivers a total healthcare approach that focuses on the whole-person – with more affordability, predictability, and simplicity.
