If there’s one thing most of us have developed after the past several months, it’s an appreciation for the comfort and safety of our homes. Who ever knew you could get so much done without even walking out your door? And with Lenovo’s handy resources, accessing the amenities of the outside world is even easier – whether you’re looking to breathe a little easier or keep your kids from going stir crazy.
Get Medical Care
If you suspect you’re sick
If you have COVID-19 symptoms or believe you were exposed to a confirmed case of the virus, contact your health care provider immediately. You can also assess your COVID-19 risk by logging in to myCigna.com and looking for the Buoy for Cigna Symptom Checker pop-up.
If you’re a Cigna member and have questions about coronavirus care and coverage, visit Cigna’s Coronavirus Resource Center. Testing is covered at 100% under the plan, while normal plan rules apply to treatment coverage. You have access to a dedicated support team for claims related to coronavirus (COVID-19) testing. Call Cigna at 1-855-287-8400 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.–8 p.m. ET.
Dial a doctor
Need to talk to a doctor, but don’t want to leave home and put your own – or others’ – health at risk? Rely on Lenovo’s telehealth services. You can talk to a doctor 24/7 from the convenience and comfort of home.

Shed Some Stress
There’s nothing like a public health issue to raise your anxiety. Even if you haven’t been personally impacted, living in the midst of so much fear and confusion can create a lot of tension and worry.
Talk it out
Our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is always here to help. Just call 1-888-371-1125 or log in to the Cigna website to connect virtually with a licensed clinician who can help you work through your concerns or refer you to other resources and services. You and all members of your household have access to a combined maximum of 8 free counseling sessions per issue.
You can also call our behavioral health counselor, Liz Grady, at 1-919-237-8900 to set up a virtual counseling appointment.
Watch a webinar
The EAP has created several on-demand webcasts to address the major challenges many of us are experiencing during these stressful times. “Managing Anxiety: Coronavirus Fears & Concerns,” “Supporting Employees: Coronavirus Fears & Concerns” (for managers), “Resilience in Challenging Times,” and many other webcasts can be viewed any time through the Cigna EAP Wellness Webcast portal.
