Cigna, SIH Reach Agreement


By WSIL Manager

WSIL -- Cigna and Southern Illinois Healthcare have reached an agreement on a new contract.

The agreement, retroactive to Jan. 1, makes SIH providers and facilities "in-network" for Cigna customers.

"We are pleased that our customers will continue to have in-network access to Southern Illinois Healthcare and we encourage any Cigna customers who have questions to call our customer service department at the number on their ID card," said Amy Turkington, public relations for Cigna.

At the beginning of the year, Cigna dropped its contract with Healthlink, an insurance company that loaned out its network of physicians and hospitals, included those operated by SIH. The decision made SIH "out-of-network" for Cigna customers until a direct contract could be negotiated.
