Beginning with the 2020-2021 policy year,
A Network Provider is a doctor, hospital or other health care provider that participates in the Cigna Preferred Provider Network.
The advantage to using a Network Provider is that these providers have agreed to accept a predetermined fee or Preferred Allowance as payment for their services. Non-Network providers have not agreed to any prearranged fee schedule, therefore any charges in excess of the insurance payment may be the student’s responsibility. Consequently, when insured students use Network Providers, out-of-pocket expenses will be less because any applicable cost sharing will be based on a Preferred Allowance.
The insured person should be aware that Network Provider hospitals may be staffed with Non-Network providers. Receiving services or care from a Non-Network provider at a Network Provider hospital does not guarantee that all charges will be paid at the Network Provider level of benefits.
