      CIGNA NEGOTIATIONS

      Important information for patients with Cigna health insurance plans

      We are pleased to share that Saint Alphonsus and Cigna have reached a multi-year agreement that reinstates our in-network status, effective March 1, 2024. The Saint Alphonsus hospitals and outpatient facilities impacted by this reinstatement follow:

      • Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, Boise, Idaho
      • Saint Alphonsus Medical Center- Nampa, Idaho
      • Saint Alphonsus Medical Center- Ontario, Oregon
      • All Saint Alphonsus Medical Group, Idaho, and Ontario, Oregon

      As a reminder, Saint Alphonsus Medical Center - Baker City, Oregon remains in-network.

      You and your family may begin scheduling appointments and receiving in-network care as you normally would. Before scheduling an appointment, please contact Cigna via the number on the back of your insurance card to ensure your care will be covered at in-network rates.

      While we wish this agreement could have come without going out of network with Cigna, we look forward to continuing our partnership.

      Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your family.

      For questions related to your specific health plan coverage or benefits, please contact Cigna using the number on the back of your health insurance card.
