Limited Distribution Drug (LDD) List

Cigna Specialty Pharmacy ServicesSM has access to the majority of Limited Distribution Drugs (LDDs) through agreements with several manufacturers. Currently, Cigna utilizes a contracted pharmacy network to help ensure that customers have access to most required medications.

In the event our pharmacy does not have or is unable to obtain access to a particular medication, we will leverage our pharmacy network to contract with a pharmacy in order to provide the medication to the customer or prescriber.

Effective for new prior authorizations obtained on or after May 1, 2018, Cigna will no longer reimburse facilities that bill us for the cost of certain LDDs that are purchased directly from specialty pharmacies, manufacturers or wholesalers. We will require a Cigna-contracted specialty pharmacy to dispense these LDDs and submit the claim to Cigna. For additional information on this LDD reimbursement change for facilities, including the list of affected LDDs, please review the Cigna Reference Guide for Physicians, Hospitals, Ancillaries, and Other Health Care Professionals. To access this guide, log in to the Cigna for Health Care Professionals website ( > Resources > Reference Guides). We recommend you check this list frequently, as additional drugs may be added.

You can read more about this LDD reimbursement change for facilities in the Cigna Reference Guide for participating physicians, hospitals, ancillaries, and other health care professionals.
