When it comes to your health, issues that affect you – from stress, anxiety and depression, to ADD/ADHD, substance misuse and more – can have a long term impact if left untreated. Last year, 37% of SchoolCare participants were living with a behavioral health diagnosis (as compared to Cigna’s national average of 25%).

The connection between mental health and quality of life is tremendous, which is why the options  you have as a SchoolCare/Cigna health plan participant are ever-changing and growing to meet the need for support. Learn more below about how to get support for behavioral health for you and your family.

Access to Traditional Care

All SchoolCare participants have access to in-person counseling and psychiatry, as well as in-patient hospitalization and out-patient facilities (with prior authorization) for both mental health and substance use disorders. You can find more information about your specific plan coverages by reviewing the Health Benefits Summary for your plan or the Health Benefits Booklet on SchoolCare’s “Plan Documents” page. Find a local provider by logging into myCigna and clicking on the “Find Care & Costs” tab.

  • Cigna’s Guided Navigation tool helps point
    you to suggested resources based on a short
    assessment of how you are feeling on a given day.

Virtual coaching, therapy and psychiatry

SchoolCare/Cigna participants also have access to more than a dozen telehealth options for behavioral health support. These programs are especially helpful for anyone experiencing long wait times to get connected to a local provider or wanting more flexibility for location of care. Virtual care options range in cost based on the program and include a few that are available at no-cost through your SchoolCare/Cigna-sponsored Employee Assistance Program. There are also programs geared specifically for kids and teens and their parents. 

To get started, log in to your myCigna account and click on the “Talk to a Doctor” button on the home screen. Click “Continue” under Counseling and either choose from your list of needs or click “skip” to get a full list of virtual/telehealth options.

Employee Assistance Program

Your EAP program provides resources for any number of issues that arise. As a SchoolCare participant, you are provided three free calls per issue with a counselor to discuss your specific concerns. Your counselor may provide real-time guidance or referrals for additional support.

To access these benefits, call Cigna at 877-622-4327 anytime 24/7 and use the Employer ID: SchoolCare or log in to your account at myCigna.com and click on “Employee Assistance Program” under the “Coverage” tab.

EAP coverage is available to anyone who resides with the subscriber, including a nanny, parent, or in-law.

EAP Wellness Webcasts can also help provide you with strategies to handle various lifestyle challenges. Explore the library of webcasts and register at Cigna.com/EAPWebcasts for a live 1-hour seminar OR watch an on-demand replay at your convenience.

Reframe Your Mindset

If you feel as though you could simply use a way to reframe negative thoughts for a happier outlook on life, consider checking out Happify, a free app for SchoolCare/Cigna participants that uses science-based activities and games to help you overcome negative thoughts, stress, and life's challenges. Happify fits into your busy schedule and can be accessed anytime from a desktop or mobile device. Get started in your myCigna portal, click EAP under the coverage tab and find Happify in the Behavioral Health Resources.

WBRC-Hinge-Testimonial-2024Pain and Your Mental Health
