  • Kaiser Permanente and Cigna announced a five-year agreement whereby Kaiser’s members seeking emergency care while traveling outside the eight states served by the health care system can visit providers contracted with Cigna. Kaiser members will be responsible for the standard cost-sharing associated with their plan rather than paying out-of-network benefits. The deal is intended to lower patient costs, streamline administrative services, and increase health care access. (Press release here; Articles here and here)
