Cigna Coronavirus (COVID-19) Interim Billing Guidance for Providers for Commercial Customers
Last updated January 13, 2023 - Highlighted text indicates updates
On January 11, 2023, the public health emergency (PHE) period for COVID-19 was extended through April 11, 2023. Consistent with the new end of the PHE period, Cigna has extended cost-share waivers for COVID-19 diagnostic testing and related office visits through April 11, 2023. We also continue to make additional key accommodations related virtual care and over-the-counter testing as outlined on this page.
Further, as a reminder, in response to the surge of COVID-19, influenza, and RSV hospitalizations across the country – and in an effort to ensure providers have necessary accommodations to continue to treat their patients in a timely way – Cigna commercial and Cigna Medicare Advantage are waiving the authorization requirement for facility-to-facility transfers from December 12, 2022 through March 15, 2023. Please review the “Authorizations and facility-specific information” frequently asked questions section on this page for additional important notes.
As always, Cigna thanks providers across the country for their continued dedication to our customers and to their local communities.
