How the plan works.

Employees and each covered member on the plan have the option to choose a primary care physician (PCP) from any one of the five provider groups in the Southern California Select Network. No matter which provider group they choose, they'll have access to hundreds1 of highly acclaimed2 providers who care about their well-being and overall health care experience. PCPs coordinate care, work closely with specialists and will submit referrals to in-network specialists and facilities when needed. This helps to ensure employees receive the care they need – and stay in-network – so they can take control of their health and health care costs.

How we apply our data-driven approach.

Working closely together and collaborating with our provider group partners, we combine provider data with claims and pharmacy data from Cigna to gain a comprehensive picture of the overall health and habits of employee populations.

We use this data to:

  • Eliminate wasteful duplication and reduce gaps in care
  • Support consistent provider communication and coordination
  • Share robust and actionable reporting
  • Provide targeted recommendations for initiatives designed to improve employee health engagement and reduce costs
