Network participation is subject to change, so please verify with the provider that they are participating in the network when making an appointment or at the time of service.

The advantage to using a preferred provider is that these providers have agreed to accept a predetermined fee or preferred allowance as payment for their services. Out-of-Network providers have not agreed to any prearranged fee schedule. Consequently, when insured students use preferred providers, out-of-pocket expenses will be less because any applicable co-payment will be based on a preferred allowance.

The insured person should be aware that preferred provider hospitals may be staffed with out of network providers. Receiving services or care from an out of network provider at a preferred provider hospital does not guarantee that all charges will be paid at the preferred provider level of benefits.

For the 2016-2017 plan year, the preferred provider networks was the CIGNA Preferred Provider Network nationally or the Tufts Preferred Provider Network in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
