Our 4th annual Value of Integration Study once again reveals the power of connecting Cigna’s medical, pharmacy and behavioral health benefits. Cigna’s unique approach — looking at both the body and mind — truly connects all three benefits and creates a full picture of our customers allowing us to improve their health at every turn.
The study, based on a two-year analysis of more than 2.3 million claims from Cigna's full book of business, found that employers offering triple-integrated benefits – medical, pharmacy and comprehensive behavioral – continue to see meaningful savings in total medical costs as compared to those with medical and basic behavioral coverage, where pharmacy is carved out.
Our 4th annual Value of Integration Study design and methodology was developed in 2018 in collaboration with KPMG — based on 30+ years of research by Harvard University — and was awarded PBMI’s 2019 Award of Excellence for Cost Containment.
