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.
