New Cigna product LocalPlusSM

On January 1, 2013, Cigna introduced LocalPlus, a new suite of health care plans that includes a smaller network of participating health care professionals. LocalPlus creates more product flexibility for employers in Tennessee and Houston, Texas, who are seeking new ways to improve the health and well-being of their employees.

About LocalPlus

  • LocalPlus includes a suite of plans – LocalPlus, LocalPlus IN, Choice Fund LocalPlus, and Choice Fund LocalPlus IN. All plans offer the full scope of services provided by traditional Cigna-administered plans, within a select group of health care professionals.

  • Cigna's existing administrative guidelines, claim submission processes, policies, and procedures apply to LocalPlus.

  • You will continue to have access to the same resources you use today. These include online capabilities through the Cigna for Health Care Professionals website (CignaforHCP.com), claim submission processes, and health advocacy programs that help employees engage in wellness efforts and manage chronic conditions.

  • The LocalPlus plans provide Away From Home Care. Plan participants will have access to the same health care professionals that are in Cigna’s national Open Access Plus (OAP) network when they are away from home.

Beginning in January, some of your patients may present the new LocalPlus ID card. The cards will contain information about where to submit claims, customer service contacts, and benefits.

 

For more information about LocalPlus, please call us at 1.800.88Cigna (882.4462).
