Cigna Preparing 2021 pharmacy benefits
This month we want to help you prepare your covered members for a new plan year. We will also provide information to keep you informed of the newest drugs coming to market in 2021 that may affect your plan. Additionally, you’ll find reminders on our low net drug cost formulary strategy, information about the launch of EvernorthSM, and a glimpse of what’s ahead.
Preparing for 2021 pharmacy benefits
For plans renewing on January 1, 2021, we want to make sure your covered members are prepared for their new plan year. From using their new ID card at the pharmacy to ensuring they have their medications when they need them, we have prepared some important reminders to help these members start the plan year off right.
Monitoring the 2021 drug pipeline
We carefully monitor the drug pipeline and the clinical results of existing drugs to ensure formularies are providing the highest clinical value and saving money for our clients and members. In 2021 we will see new specialty drug approvals for disease states including eczema and cancer, as well as new biosimilars to the market.
