Switch Insurance Administrator





Action by Staff


Decide on the coverage options.


Staff accepting assignments away from Headquarters cannot switch between Option A and Option B upon movement of administration to Cigna. However, if staff are in Option C, they must choose between Option A or B as Cigna does not offer an equivalent Option C for Active Staff.

Read MIP Plan Information to help you make the choice or contact insurance administrator to inquire about availability of doctors, dentists, and facilities contact the relevant insurance administrator from:

  • Aetna for medical benefits (for staff in or outside the U.S.)
  • CVS/Caremark for pharmacy benefits (for staff in the U.S.)
  • Cigna International for medical and dental benefits (only for staff living outside the U.S.).
  • Cigna Dental (for staff in or outside the U.S. covered by Aetna)
  • EyeMed (for staff in or outside the U.S. covered by Aetna)
