Cigna provides long- and short-term disability plans through employers. These plans are customizable to meet specific business needs. The plans also include vocational and active case management services to assist with an employee’s transition back to work.
Cigna offers additional programs with its disability insurance to promote health — physical, emotional, and financial.
Cigna offers both short- and long-term disability plans through employers. These plans can be customized to meet the business’s or company’s needs for coverage and funding options.
Cigna’s disability plans include vocational and active case management services. These features help your employees prepare to return to work and make their return a smooth transition.
Cigna has a quick claims process, which allows employees to have fast claims decisions and start receiving payouts sooner.
If an employee also has Cigna’s Accidental Injury or its Critical Illness or Hospital Care insurance, filing one disability claim automatically generates claims to file for these other kinds of insurance. This means less paperwork and hassle for insured people.
Cigna’s disability insurance also includes three additional resources:
Cigna Health Rewards ® program provides discounts on certain health and wellness products and services like vitamins, alternative medicine, nutrition, vision, and hearing.
The My Secure Advantage (™) program helps employees with financial planning. Through this program, they can work with a financial advisor for free for 30 days to develop good money management practices. To continue the coaching after the initial 30 days, it costs $39.95 per month.
Through this program, individuals can also find additional finance education and resources and help with some legal documents, like wills. People can meet with an attorney for 30 minutes to review these documents free of charge. The program also provides access to a Fraud Resolution Specialist.
The program also has a 25 percent discount for tax preparation and planning services and a 25 percent discount on attorney fees.
The Life Assistance Program (SM) focuses on mental and emotional health. It includes a 24-7 phone consultation and in-person counselling sessions. Individuals with this program also have access to free 30 minute legal or financial consultations.
For an additional cost, employers can add Cigna Health Advocacy Services. These services provide support through help understanding diagnoses, understanding health plan costs, benefits, and the claims process, and help finding good local care that meets individual needs.
Cigna provided limited online information for its disability insurance plans. Interested employers must reach out directly to Cigna to learn more specific details of plans and funding options.
Cigna have been very difficult to work with. They use too be helpful now they are just added stress when you are client that need the assistance. I have had doctors more than one to indicate my medical condition that they already been paying me one for over 15 months I get new diagnosis added an then they denied my claim. I have appeal my claim server also times still out of work and they decided not to continue to pay me on my claim. If they don’t want to go by what your doctor or doctors are sending in then they need to provide doctors for their clients to see then. Cause they basically saying the doctors you see is not good enough for them. They need a better medical board review panel.
For as long as we have had Cigna coverage we have been mostly satisfied. Of course you always want an insurance company to pay more.
Very good, not a single problem in 5-6 years, no issue over coverage or payments
Cigna has been great, I get coverage through my work and I've been veery happy with the coverage and the Customer Service.
Well I love they give u rides to the doctor. Plus the over the counter prescription r great
We have Cigna insurance through my husbands employer. I do like how helpful they have been when I've called with questions or concerns. I don't like that they aren't accepted at the facilities closest to me or that they force me to fill prescriptions through their Home Delivery Pharmacy.

Amazing customer service. When you call they patiently work with you and thoroughly answer all your questions!
I am not a fan of CIGNA. They have so many prior authorizations and they are difficult to work with. Getting a live person on the phone is a series of too many buttons. Difficult and frustrating.
I am so disappointed by what the benefits have turned into over the last several years. Cigna used to be amazing and now the benefits have plummeted.
Had insurance through them! I have no complaints. Their coverage was great and decently priced. Love them!
Cigna’s reimbursement rates are extremely low. Many providers will no longer accept Cigna.
