Tenet Healthcare Corporation and Cigna Corporation announced that they have extended and expanded their network access through the signing of a new multi-year contract. The agreement will provide Cigna customers with continued in-network access through 2025 to Tenet’s hospitals, physician clinics and outpatient centers, including the ambulatory facilities operated by United Surgical Partners International that are consolidated in Tenet’s financial statements.
“We are pleased to have reached this agreement with Cigna four months earlier than the expiration of our current contract,” said Ronald A. Rittenmeyer, Executive Chairman of Tenet Healthcare. “The pandemic has brought many challenges for our patients and providers, underscoring the importance of ensuring uninterrupted, in-network access to the quality physicians and care facilities Cigna members know and trust. This includes a broader network of lower-cost ambulatory surgery centers that are part of the multi-year agreement.”
“This agreement builds on our long-standing efforts to ensure millions of Cigna customers can access affordable, quality care from the skilled providers of Tenet Healthcare,” said Mike Triplett, President of U.S. Commercial for Cigna. “Together, we will continue to enhance the healthcare experience for patients while improving the health, well-being and peace of mind of the communities we serve.”
