Today, Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) officials announce completion of an agreement with Cigna Health Insurance for VUMC’s full participation in Cigna Connect, an Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliant exchange-based individual insurance plan option.
“The ability to serve all patients, including those who are self-employed or operate small businesses, who need or prefer the services we offer is central to our mission. We have been working diligently with officials at Cigna to secure an option for our patients who purchase their health insurance through individual plans on the exchange. We are pleased to announce an agreement that will allow individuals who enroll in Cigna Connect to be seen as in-network by Vanderbilt’s physicians,” said C. Wright Pinson, MBA, M.D., Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Chief Health System Officer for VUMC.
Individuals who enroll in Cigna Connect during this year’s open enrollment period — Nov. 1 thru Dec. 15 — will be able to be seen at their maximum benefit level at VUMC beginning Jan. 1, 2018. Cigna Connect will be available through Cigna and the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace (exchange) at Healthcare.gov.
Through more than 65 health insurance plans, patients have options to be seen by VUMC’s clinicians. For a complete list of health insurance plans accepted by VUMC please go to Patient and Visitor Information / Insurance Plans.
