‘Cigna Health Insurance’ was the result of a 1982 merger between two insurance giants at the time, Connecticut General and the INA Corporation. Today, the insurance provider offers health care plans to approximately 16 million Americans globally. Cigna’s Behavioral Health plans provide coverage for alcohol and drug addiction treatment via over 122,000 health care professionals at 14,000 facilities nationwide. Cigna’s Behavioral Health benefits cover treatment for substance use disorders as well as mental health services, such as treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD and ADD.

CIGNA HealthcareWhile Cigna’s Behavioral Health benefits will vary based on your specific medical plan, Cigna commits to no separate deductible for behavioral health services and offers Complex Case Management services that will help coordinate your care between medical doctors, mental health professionals, and your pharmacist. In 2015, Cigna’s Case Management programs were proven to reduce overall medical expenses over 20% for most patients.

Cigna Behavioral Health Benefits are included in all Cigna employer-based plans. Substance use disorder services are also included in all marketplace plans, along with behavioral health services as an essential health benefit. Your coverage includes all levels of mental health care including outpatient care such as 12-step programs, routine outpatient care (ROC) such as group or individual therapy, intensive outpatient programs (IOP), and inpatient care.

How much your services will cost you depends on your medical plan’s deductible and co-pay amount, as well as the co-insurance rate. Your deductible is the amount you are responsible for paying before your health insurance plan begins to cover any expenses. Your co-payment amount is a fixed amount you must pay for a particular service before your insurance provides coverage. Once the deductible and co-payment are met, your co-insurance is the percentage of a claim that your health plan will cover. Additional factors that affect your coverage may include the type of addiction being treated, the length of stay in a given rehab facility, the period of time needed in outpatient or aftercare services. The quickest and easiest way to see how your benefits may apply within the Guardian Recovery Network is to call us at 877-831-2533.

Cigna has long been committed to helping its customers who suffer from substance abuse. In 2015 Cigna made a commitment to improve treatment for substance use disorders. In collaboration with the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), Cigna facilitated research efforts by providing two years of claims data to study trends in treatment, and subsequent relapse, in order to promote better success with long term recovery. The study was partially funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. In 2018, Cigna announced the success of another initiative, a 25% reduction in opioid use, thanks to a partnership with physicians to encourage alternate forms of pain reduction. The success of the partnership has reduced opioid use among Cigna patients to pre-epidemic levels. The Cigna Foundation continues to donate annually to non-profit organizations working to curb the opioid epidemic and other alcohol and drug abuse disorders.
