MACo's Gold Corporate Partner
has partnered with Express Scripts and Buoy Health to offer customers a digital screening tool for COVID-19 on their website.
Cigna and Express Scripts are working with Buoy Health to provide an early intervention screening tool to help customers and members understand their personal risks for COVID-19. The digital tool immediately triages symptoms and recommends next steps for care, while also relieving demand on an over-burdened health care system.
"We've learned that when it comes to personal health, the most important action people take is often the very first one," said Steve Miller, MD, Chief Clinical Officer, Cigna. "Through our partnerships with Buoy Health, we are creating a new, convenient 'first step' action for customers with questions about potential COVID-19 symptoms. During this crisis, our teams are relentlessly focused on supporting our customers at every step along the way."
tool incorporates guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help categorize people's risk level as low, medium or high and make the appropriate recommendations.
