Provider Advisory Council

The purpose of the Provider Advisory Council (PAC) is to bring leaders in the provider community together with senior management of Cigna to discuss issues important to the STAR+PLUS program. The PAC meets quarterly with the leaders of your organization. Together, we can:

  • Understand how managed care impacts provider business operations – and ways that Cigna can ease operational burdens.
  • Learn how providers – hospitals, physicians, long-term services and supports, ancillary, and pharmacy providers – can work together to improve clinical outcomes for our members and your patients.
  • Develop industry-leading provider and member initiatives that measurably impact quality outcomes for Cigna members and reward providers for working together to achieve those goals.

Cigna will establish and conduct quarterly meetings with Network Providers. Membership in the Provider Advisory Council(s) must include, at a minimum, acute, community-based LTSS, and pharmacy providers. A separate Provider Advisory Council will be established in each Service Delivery Area where Cigna operates. Membership on the Council will be in staggered 2-year terms. Cigna attendees will include representation from Provider Relations, Health Services, and Service Coordination.

To become a part of the Provider Advisory Council, please contact Provider Relations Central at: ProviderRelationsCentral@healthspring.com
