FORT WAYNE – Parkview Health and global health service company Cigna have announced they have extended their contract and will provide in-network access at a reduced cost for Cigna customers at Parkview hospitals.
Parkview’s nearly 900 health care providers across northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio will also remain in-network with Cigna. Parkview Warsaw is part of the network.
For decades, Parkview and Cigna have demonstrated a record of improving community health, affordability and patient experience. Earlier this year, the two began collaborating on an agreement that would allow for common goals and increased data transparency to ultimately benefit employers and customers.
“As Parkview continues to focus on value and affordability, we are working to redefine the playing field by transforming the way we collaborate with insurance companies,” said Greg Johnson, DO, chief clinical integration officer, Parkview Health. “We are partnering with insurance companies like Cigna to create value-based insurance design and partnering with employers to create value-based benefit design, where the two are not only in alignment but also allow for shared risk – and reward – among all. This shift requires that we support one another and focus beyond just price. And we look forward to doing just that with Cigna.”
