Cigna HealthCare for Seniors announced Tuesday it will offer free electronic visits and other online health services through McKesson Corp.'s connectivity link RelayHealth. Cigna says it is the first Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan in Arizona to provide coverage for e-visits.
Cigna's physician network, called Cigna Medical Group currently offers online health care services, including e-visits at a nominal charge, to its non-Medicare patients. The online services were launched at its 17 health care centers in Arizona in mid-2006. Now all CMG patients can use RelayHealth to schedule or cancel appointments, refill prescriptions, request lab results, send a note to their doctor's office, request a referral, and manage their personal health records online.
