Accredo to be Cigna’s preferred specialty pharmacy

As a premier specialty pharmacy, and part of the Express Scripts portfolio of services, Accredo will be Cigna’s preferred specialty pharmacy starting later this year. This means that customers who use Cigna Specialty Pharmacy today will receive their specialty pharmacy services from Accredo, a Cigna company.1 Cigna's current in-house specialty pharmacy will be integrated into Accredo.

Accredo is a leading specialty pharmacy with more than 35 years’ experience in specialty pharmacy operations, condition-specific clinical programs and most importantly, compassionate customer care.

Accredo will help Cigna lead the way in three key areas that are essential to improving customer health and lowering overall costs:

  1. Clinical capabilities and individualized focused care to drive improved outcomes (500 condition-focused pharmacists and over 350 proprietary clinical protocols)2
  2. Local and community support to drive better health and care engagement (200 nurse educators helping caregivers, 200 trusted physician advisors and 550 home infusion nurses across the United States)2
  3. Scale and integration to drive savings
