Welcome to the Cigna-HealthSpring STAR+PLUS Plan

Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Cigna-HealthSpring started in 2000. It’s now one of the country’s largest and fastest-growing coordinated care plans whose primary focus is Medicare Advantage plans. Cigna-HealthSpring has Medicare Advantage plans in Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C., as well as a national stand-alone prescription drug plan. Given our long partnership with dual-eligible beneficiaries, we are very excited to offer services to our valued members by expanding into Medicaid health care across many states.

We value our relationship with all of our Providers and are committed to working with you to meet the needs of your patients, our Members. Discover the Cigna-HealthSpring difference and learn more about our Medicaid plans.

Provider Advisory Council

The purpose of the Provider Advisory Council (PAC) is to bring leaders in the provider community together with senior management of Cigna-HealthSpring to discuss issues important to the STAR+PLUS program. The PAC meets quarterly with the leaders of your organization. Together, we can:

  • Understand how managed care impacts provider business operations – and ways that Cigna-HealthSpring can ease operational burdens.

  • Learn how providers – hospitals, physicians, long-term services and supports, ancillary, and pharmacy providers – can work together to improve clinical outcomes for our members and your patients.

  • Develop industry-leading provider and member initiatives that measurably impact quality outcomes for Cigna-HealthSpring members and reward providers for working together to achieve those goals.

Cigna-HealthSpring will establish and conduct quarterly meetings with Network Providers. Membership in the Provider Advisory Council(s) must include, at a minimum, acute, community-based LTSS, and pharmacy providers. A separate Provider Advisory Council will be established in each Service Delivery Area where Cigna-HealthSpring operates. Membership on the Council will be in staggered 2-year terms. Cigna-HealthSpring attendees will include representation from Provider Relations, Health Services and Service Coordination.
