Piper Jaffray believes Cigna's (CI) coverage policy update regarding Questcor's (QCOR) Acthar Gel is unlikely to have meaningful impact. Piper does not see heightened risk around the closing of Mallinckrodt's (MNK) acquisition of Questcor. Piper says that while Cigna's new language is suggestive of tighter restriction on patient access, there is no "blanket statement that denies coverage beyond the infantile spasms setting." Piper reiterates an Overweight rating on Mallinckrodt with a $90 price target.
