Cigna and Priority Health are teaming up to offer a more expansive network to employers in Michigan.
Beginning Jan. 1, Cigna’s employer clients will have access to Priority Health’s provider network in the state, and Priority Health clients will have access to Cigna’s network when they travel outside of Priority’s service area, the two insurers announced Monday.
The goal, they said, is to make it easier for members to access in-network providers. The two payers will also collaborate on data analytics and new innovative programs.
Priority Health and Cigna have been collaborators since 2018, aiming to offer wide networks to employers that are in Michigan but have a national footprint.
The two will also continue to team with Upper Peninsula Health Plan to offer a network in the upper peninsula region of the state.
