At The Cigna Group, everything we do is dedicated to improving the health and vitality of those we serve.  Not just for our clients and customers, but for our people too. Our employees are the collective force that continues to drive our growth and improve the lives of the people we serve.

All employees are eligible for comprehensive benefits to support their health and vitality on day one. 

Here is an overview of our standard benefit offerings and some specialty programs designed to encourage work life balance.

If you are actively interviewing, be sure to ask your recruiter if you'd like more detailed information.

Employee Benefits

Rewards and Time Away​​​​​​​

All employees start with a minimum of 18 days of paid time off, plus paid holidays.

Employees have the option to carry over a limited amount of unused time, and after their first year of service, they can also purchase additional PTO when enrolling in their benefits.*

The Cigna Group offers many other benefit programs that allow you to take time away to care for others.

* Some exclusions apply. 

Medical Benefits

We offer five core medical plan options that cover in-network preventive care. This includes well child visits, prenatal care, physicals, immunizations, and cancer screenings at $0.

If enrolled, you have an opportunity to earn wellness incentives - up to $800 for employees and $500 for covered spouses/domestic partners.

All plan options include integrated pharmacy benefits, too! There is no charge or deductible for most generic, preventive medications.

Dental and Vision

We offer two dental plan options for employees to choose from. Both options cover preventive care at no cost.

Our vision plan covers routine eye exams and eye wear (glasses and contacts).  The plan covers both in-network and out-of-network services. Corrective lenses, frames, and contact lenses are covered every 12 months.

The plan does not cover both contact lenses and frames in the same benefit year.   

Financial Support

The Cigna Group offers a 401(k) with company match along with other tools and resources to help our employees build a healthy financial future.

We have an Educational Development Program (pre-authorization required) that supports employees in their professional development and growth.

​​​​​​​In addition, employees can take advantage of a 30-minute virtual coaching session or get a head start on saving for college with a 529 savings account.

Employee Well-Being

Global Wellness Challenge

The Cigna Group supports an annual Global Wellness Challenge for all employees. Participants track exercise and other wellness activities in this 6-week, team-based event designed to improve health and vitality. 

In 2023, we had 28,605 participants log over 60 million minutes of activity! 


If enrolled in one of the medical plans, employees and covered dependents can receive their annual flu shot, biometric screening, and all immunizations and preventive care covered at no additional cost.

Many of our offices host flu shot and biometric screening events on site. Making it simpler for employees to receive preventive care support. 

Employee Assistance Program 

Confide Behavioral Health Navigator SM is our enhanced employee assistance program (EAP).  Confide delivers personalized concierge-level service to help you get the support you need when you need it. 

Confide is a confidential benefit for employees and their household members to help solve personal issues and better balance their life.
