News Medical notes that health care and insurance giant Cigna has decided to implement temporary measures to help Americans living in states that have been ravaged by Hurricane Sandy, including Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C. Between October 29 and November 4, Cigna will allow consumers in these states to refill prescriptions ahead of schedule, waive pre-certification and hospital admission requirements, pay claims for out-of-network providers and services at in-network rates, and open up its 24-hour telephone line to provide assistance to customers feeling anxiety or other stress-related issues due to the storm.
