Grand Rapids’ Priority Health today announced a new agreement with Connecticut-based Cigna Payer Solutions. The agreement with Cigna will enable Priority Health members who travel out of state to access Cigna’s PPO network of nearly 1 million health care providers nationwide for services outside of Michigan.
“As Priority Health continues to grow, we’re working with more employers who are also expanding their business here in Michigan and across the country. This is another example of our commitment to create solutions that deliver better health care value for our members,” says Joan Budden, president and CEO of Priority Health.
“Priority Health members already know that they get coverage from coast-to-coast in the state of Michigan thanks to our comprehensive network of in-state providers. Now, as a result of this agreement with Cigna Payer Solutions, we’re offering a better and more seamless experience for our members who live, work, or travel out-of-state as well.”
Priority Health is the second largest health plan in Michigan, serving nearly 1 million members across the state. The company has 1,200 employees, and was founded more than 30 years ago.
Cigna’s health care network includes a variety of doctors, specialists, hospitals, labs, and facilities. Providers in Cigna’s network go through a comprehensive credentialing process to help ensure members receive quality care.
The new agreement is expected to take effect this fall.
