Your Best Benefit - Your Greatest Savings

We encourage you to use the OAP Network to obtain the Plan's network benefits. The Plan makes a diligent effort to provide members with the most comprehensive and cost effective benefit package and the OAP network will allow our members to get the best value from their health care dollars. You will realize an immediate savings in your out-of-pocket costs when using an OAP provider due to deeper provider discounts. You have a choice of quality providers in a network that has received accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for your medical care.

The Cigna HealthCare OAP Network has a large national presence for network access. Your identification card displays their network logo that will allow you discounts and enhanced savings for 9,732 general acute care hospitals, 22,747 facilities and 3,691,772 specialists and primary care physicians and 170 transplant facilities.

You also have access to the Hospital Comparison tool that allows you to compare all hospitals by procedure, the average length of stay, and the average cost. This information allows you to make an informed health care decision.

The Cigna HealthCare OAP Network also includes 327,577 mental health clinicians, 6,041 mental health facilities and over 20,526 mental health clinics to provide quality mental health and substance abuse services.

You can locate an OAP provider or hospital, or verify that your provider participates in the Cigna HealthCare OAP network by calling 855-511-1893 or, by visiting our Cigna HealthCare OAP Online Provider Directory.
