Cigna High Deductible Plan (HDHP)

Personal or Business Travel

Domestic Travel

Covers out-of-area treatment while in the United States. Otherwise, the treatment will be treated as an out-of-network service and you will have to meet your deductible and charges will be covered at 50%.

 

The Cigna plan has networks throughout the country. Before leaving for the field project, you can access Cigna's web site at www.cigna.com and print a provider directory for the location where you will be working. If you need to see a physician, use the directory to find an in-network provider near where you are located.

 

If a non-network physician is used, the treatment will be treated as an out-of-network service and you will have to meet your deductible and charges will be covered at 50%.

If outside of the United States, Cigna covers emergency and urgent care only.  Call Cigna directly 1-866-763-8442 if assistance is needed.
