Quit Genius, the world’s first digital clinic for multiple addictions, announced its partnership with Evernorth, Cigna Corporation’s health services segment, to broaden access to its digital addiction solutions. As the single solution for nicotine cessation on the Evernorth Digital Health Formulary, Evernorth clients that utilize Quit Genius will have access to its digital program built on the evidence-based principles of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to improve quit rates and lower overall health care costs, including those exacerbated by coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Announced last year, the Evernorth Digital Health Formulary allows participating employers and health plans to increase consumers’ access to emerging products and technology simply and affordably. Consumers who access Quit Genius via the Digital Health Formulary are able to streamline the procurement process while members will receive support from Express Scripts specialist pharmacists to ensure appropriate use of the technology.
