Cigna Care designation is how we identify quality, cost-efficient Cigna-participating physicians across 21 specialties, including primary care. Based on quality and claims information available to us, we have ranked physicians in your market. Those physicians who are in the highest group for their results on quality measures and who also have the most cost-efficient group results as compared to their peers in their market receive a Cigna Care designation. While all Cigna-participating physicians do not receive a Cigna Care designation, they do remain contracted with us, and their reimbursement is not affected.
We have been honored by being selected to mentor Physicians – “Mentor for physicians joining Advocate Physician Partners because of your outstanding performance in the Clinical Integration program, your cost-effective practice and your leadership characteristics.”
