High-performing providers bringing clients and customers quality care and savings

Cigna works with health care providers equally committed to helping our clients and customers find more personalized, affordable care.

  • We offer solutions to meet many needs.

    Our networks range from broad, open access networks to more locally focused, high-performing networks to provide accessibility and affordability.

Cigna Collaborative Care

Cigna Collaborative Care® (CCC) arrangements with primary care groups reward providers for the value they deliver rather than the number of tests or patient visits they have. By providing incentives to health care providers, we can help improve our customers’ health and reduce total medical costs.

191 CCC arrangements with physician groups in 31 states1
80% of Cigna customers have access to a CCC physician in all markets across the United States2

National open access network

Open Access Plus (OAP) provides national benefits at a potential cost savings by encouraging a primary care provider relationship.

Local solutions

Cigna LocalPlus® plans provide access to a limited network that includes doctors, specialists, and hospitals right where your clients' employees live.3 Wellness services and programs are also available to help employees get on a path to good health.

Flexible plan designs can be customized to help your clients control costs. When compared to clients in similarly designed Cigna Open Access Plans, clients with LocalPlus networks could save 5–15% in medical costs.4

Focused solutions

Cigna SureFit® is built around an integrated network of doctors and hospitals in select locations that are committed to providing quality care and lower costs through collaboration. Customers have access to innovative decision support tools and the Cigna One Guide® service, our highest level of personal support. With a Cigna SureFit plan, clients could see an immediate savings of 10% over our OAP product.5

HMOs

With Cigna's Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) health plan, employees choose a primary care provider (PCP) from a local network to serve as their personal provider to coordinate care and treatment. Features like access to preventive care and wellness and discount programs can foster earlier intervention and more cost-effective outcomes.


Southern California Select

Southern California Select plans are available to employers in San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles counties. Employees who live or work in these areas choose from three award-winning provider groups. These well-recognized providers are: Scripps Health6, St. Joseph Hoag Health and HealthCare Partners7, and DaVita Medical Group8. The plans are designed to improve access, quality and affordability, while making the health care experience simpler. The Southern California Select Plan offers competitive pricing, with an 8–14% discount9, compared with our traditional HMO plan.
