These sessions can be virtual on your phone, tablet, or home computer, or face-to-face.
For retired members and employees not eligible for the EAP, Cigna is offering a separate 24-hour toll-free help line. Call 866-912-1687 to connect with qualified clinicians, including licensed social workers, professional counselors, and psychologists, who can provide support and guidance.
