Mountain States

A new kind of health care plan is coming to Utah.

There’s a new way for your clients to save on quality care. That’s because Cigna is bringing our successful LocalPlus® plans to Utah starting in 2021. Cigna LocalPlus helps your clients manage costs – without sacrificing the quality and convenience their employees want and expect.

How does LocalPlus work?

Cigna works with health care communities in counties throughout the state, creating a collaborative network of local providers, specialists and hospitals. This closely connected network delivers value and results right where your clients are based – and right where their employees live. What happens if employees temporarily leave their local area? Not a problem. LocalPlus includes our Away From Home Care feature, giving employees access to in-network care from anywhere in the country where a LocalPlus Network does not exist.

Setting the stage for more savings and quality care.

Is Utah ready for LocalPlus? We’re happy to say that major hospitals and provider groups throughout the state are already on board. In fact, Cigna’s LocalPlus network in Utah includes:

  • Over 5,800 providers1
  • 30 hospitals and urgent care centers1

Let’s take a closer look at your clients’ opportunity to save.

By taking a collaborative approach to care, where high performing doctors and facilities in the same community coordinate their efforts, the result is an increase in savings and better health outcomes. Cigna LocalPlus can potentially offer:

  • Up to 11% targeted rate differential compared to our Open Access Plus (OAP) Network.2
  • 70% savings for employees when they use in-network labs, such as LabCorp or Quest3

The health care landscape in Utah is about to change, making it easy for your clients to save on quality care. For a quick overview of how LocalPlus can work for your clients, watch this video.

Here’s an informative LocalPlus flyer you can share with your clients. It provides details that specifically pertain to Utah, including a list of the major hospitals and provider groups in the state that will participate in Cigna LocalPlus.

  1. As of May 2020. Subject to change.
  2. Targeted rate differential based on an internal Cigna study conducted in 2020 comparing Cigna's LocalPlus (LP) to Cigna's Open Access Plus (OAP) insured plan rates in Utah with the same benefit plan provisions. Savings are not guaranteed and will vary depending on plan design, geographic distribution, and utilization patterns
  3. Savings based on average in-network national lab costs compared with out-of-network labs using internal Cigna national claims data: DOS January–December 2018. Savings will vary.
