Topic Private Payer: Cigna Care Designation Reconsideration Requests Due
Background In June, Cigna sent a letter to primary care physicians and other specialists in 19 specialties about the availability of their results for the 2013 Cigna Care designation and physician quality and cost-efficiency displays. Physicians have until Aug. 2, 2012, to submit a reconsideration request for the correct information to be posted in the online provider directory.
Regulating Body Cigna
Compliance Date 8/2/2012
Consequences The Cigna Care Designation program may rank physicians inappropriately. Physicians can appeal at anytime, but their correct information may not be in the online provider directory.
Next Steps Review the TMA Guide to HB 1888, which outlines the rights physicians have regarding ranking/tiering programs.
