Cigna strongly embraces the scientific evidence that the use of tobacco products is harmful to the health of the user, the user's family, and the general public. Cigna''s mission is to improve the health, well-being and security of the people we serve, which starts with our employees. Starting with job offers dated January 1, 2014, Cigna will no longer hire - where state law permits -- applicants who use tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars and chewing or smokeless tobacco. Currently, these states are: AL, AK, AZ, AR, DE, FL, GA, HI, IA, ID, KS, MD, MA, MI, NE, OH, PA, TX, UT, VT and WA.
If you're passionate about making a difference one individual at a time, and would like to join the Cigna team, you'll be screened for nicotine as part of the pre-employment drug screen in states that allow the screening. If you test positive for nicotine, although we won't be able to offer you employment, we encourage you to check with your medical provider to explore your options and resources for quitting. Once you're tobacco-free, you may re-apply for jobs with Cigna in six months.
Cigna offers a Healthy Life Incentive for Cigna Medical Plan participants who live tobacco free. As a result, non-tobacco users pay a reduced premium for their Medical Plan coverage.
