Will your clients have access to Methodist in 2018

Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) announced that effective January 1, 2018, they will be realigning from Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare hospitals to Baptist Memorial Health Care Corp. hospitals as the in-network hospitals for their BCBS of Tennessee S network.1

The switch to Baptist means that Memphis employer groups who currently offer the BCBS Network S will now have fewer geographic access points and only one hospital campus in the city of Memphis. However, there is good news you can bring to these potential clients:

For 22+ years, Cigna has and continues to offer access to Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare hospitals.

Learn more about what Cigna and Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare have to offer your clients in the Cigna and Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare sales sheet, which we encourage you to share with your clients who may be impacted by the change.

An all-in-one health benefits solution in Tennessee

Cigna SureFit® is a local health care solution designed to make health care more personal and more affordable. It was built specifically for Tennessee and the people who live here.

Integrated benefits with value built in
Cigna SureFit health plans combine medical, pharmacy and behavioral health benefits with enhanced care management. Engineered to work better together, Cigna SureFit addresses the whole health of employees, including high-cost, co-occurring conditions.

The integration of benefits streamlines administration, offers more opportunity for holistic employee engagement and results in estimated client savings of $193 per member per year.*

Smart decision, made simple
Cigna SureFit includes Cigna One Guide® service with sophisticated, in-the-moment data to influence smart choices. With a holistic view of health information, personal guides can help employees with anything from choosing a plan and finding care, to saving money and getting the most from their benefits.

High-value network - Tennessee
The Cigna SureFit network is built around a concentration of local, value-based providers committed to delivering quality care at a lower cost. Rewarded for quality rather than quantity, network providers continuously work to improve value.

**Percentage of savings is estimated, based on an internal Cigna study conducted in 2018 comparing Cigna’s SureFit network with Cigna’s Open Access Plus (OAP) network in Tennessee, assuming equivalent benefit structure, deductibles, copay and out-of-pocket maximum limits. Savings range represents the potential savings and is not guaranteed. Savings will also vary depending on plan design, geographic distribution and utilization patterns.
