SCH Receives Cigna Care Designation and Tier 1 Provider

December 13, 2021

Shenandoah Community Health has received the Cigna Care and Tier 1 Provider designation effective January 1, 2022.

To help Cigna customers with relevant information to make their own health care decisions, they evaluate quality and cost efficiency on participating providers across 21 specialties, including primary care. Providers who meet Cigna's specific quality and cost-efficiency criteria can receive the Cigna Care Designation.

Cigna's tiered-benefit option is offered in various markets and has copayment and coinsurance levels for covered services provided by Tier 1 Providers that differ from those of other participating providers. The benefit is intended to encourage individuals with this plan to consider using a Tier 1 Provider. Additionally, customers may experience a lower coinsurance or copayment when selecting a Tier 1 Provider.

Providers who earn the 2022 Cigna Care Designation and Tier 1 Provider status will display with a symbol next to their name in provider directories on and Shenandoah Community Health appreciates this designation and is committed to quality care for patients of all payer types as well as the uninsured. SCH serves all patients—adults and children— regardless of ability to pay.
