IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR THOSE WITH CIGNA INSURANCE 

https://www.chron.com/business/article/Cigna-to-end-contract-with-Memorial-Hermann-14911305.php?utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=socialflow&utm_source=facebook.com

Earlier this week, the Houston Chronicle published a story detailing that Cigna may terminate its relationship with Houston Based Memorial Hermann Hospital in March 2020.  Some City of Houston insurance providers (not Kelsey), use Memorial Hermann for some of its active and pre-Medicare insurance plans. Further details can be found in the attached link. 

It s important to note that this does not apply to Cigna’s City of Houston Medicare Advantage plans. 

The HPROA has been communicating with City H.R. management this week over this issue.  There is only limited information that the City will share since everything is still in negotiation.  The City advised us that there will be no further information until next year February or March...unless the parties come to an agreement sooner.  

The City did specifically note that at this time Cigna is still within the Memorial Hermann network.  There are no changes to the Cigna coverage at this time.  They will know more by March 15 about what it means moving forward.  

We completely understand the stress that our members could be experiencing who have this CIGNA coverage.  Be assured that the HPROA will keep our members informed by blasting out specifics whenever further information is released.
