The Omada® Wellness Program NEW 

The Omada® Program is a personalized program that could help individuals reach their health goals, whether that’s losing weight or improving overall health. The program offers eligible participants a professional health coach for tailored support and guidance, a connected scale to track progress (and keep for good), an online community personalized to your interests, weekly interactive lessons, and insightful health metrics to learn what is (and isn’t) working.

The Omada program is for employees and their covered adult dependents who are enrolled in Loyola’s medical plan through Cigna, who are at risk for type 2 diabetes or heart disease, and who are accepted by Omada® into the program. Once accepted, the program is at no additional cost.

Check with Omada® to see if you or your adult dependents are eligible, at: www.omadahealth.com/omadaforcigna.

The Omada® program is administered by Omada Health, Inc., an independent third-party service provider. All Cigna® products and services are provided exclusively by or through operating subsidiaries of Cigna Corporation, including Cigna Health and Life Insurance Company or its affiliates. The Omada® program is not administered by Cigna. It is administered solely by Omada Health, Inc. which is responsible for the program.
