Cigna Communication Update
    
Oncology Clinical Pathways Program
On January 1, 2021, Cigna will launch an oncology clinical pathways program to promote the use of clinically appropriate, safe, and cost-effective therapies to improve patient outcomes.

The oncology clinical pathways program is intended to improve quality and value in cancer care by providing treating oncologists with evidence-based data to assist in selecting chemotherapy regimens that represent the highest value for patients. The program's regimens are selected based on clinical efficacy, safety, quality, and consistency of evidence, as well as affordability, if appropriate. These preferred regimens will be highlighted during the prior authorization process on eviCore.com.
 
An article about this program will be in the October edition of Cigna Network News
