Cigna® & Boost
HR teams spend a significant amount of time on manual configuration of benefits. It’s time to take that time back!
The age of real-time integrations and instant access to information is upon us. And it’s essential that technology platforms and insurance carriers take full advantage of these advances to create the best customer experience possible. That is why Cigna and PlanSource are working together with Boost, because they share common goals of leveraging innovation to deliver affordability and simplification.
Through Boost, PlanSource and Cigna are revolutionizing the way benefits are set up and administered. Through simplified billing, an optimized shopping experience and future state-of-the-art API integrations, we will save HR teams valuable hours and lead the industry into the modern age of benefits administration.
Why choose Cigna?
Champions for affordable, predictable and simple healthcare for everyone we serve.
In addition to Cigna's qualifying lines of dental, life, disability and supplemental health coverage, Cigna is currently the only participating carrier in Boost that also offers medical to focus on whole person health.*
Our whole-person health approach helps lower total health care costs and help improve health outcomes by integrating the physical, emotional, financial, social and environmental aspects of your employees’ health.
Our ability to coordinate across medical, dental, and supplemental health plans provides a seamless view across all benefits, giving you the ability to manage costs – and care – holistically.
Through Simple File® if an employee has multiple plans with us, we're able to use their Cigna claim data to remind or automatically submit their accidental injury, critical illness or hospital care claim on their behalf – so they can focus on getting back to health and life.
Clients agree that the Cigna and PlanSource partnership has been valuable to them, their company and their employees by improving the employee experience and creating process efficiencies.**
*Cigna’s medical coverage is not a qualifying line of Boost coverage
Our mutual customers agree, "Cigna and PlanSource have effectively worked together to increase time available to handle other HR tasks.”**
