Cigna COVID-19 Customer Protection Program


During this national emergency, Cigna is more committed than ever to help protect our customers. One way we’re doing this is to proactively monitor out-of-network claims by providers who may be charging unreasonable and excessive rates for COVID-19-related testing, diagnostic screening and treatment.


Through Cigna’s new COVID-19 Customer Protection Program, we have put additional support and resources in place to ensure our customers can confidently focus on recovery and not worry about the balance billing practices of some providers.

If you’re found to have an elevated temperature you’ll be referred to a separate consult area where you’ll be provided directions for receiving appropriate care. 
Emergency departments remain open for those with serious conditions who need immediate medical attention. For primary care, specialty care, and mental health services, start by connecting with your care team from the safety and comfort of your home by
