Starting in August, getting care while traveling is about to get easier.
Kaiser Permanente’s agreement with Cigna will provide more convenient access to care while traveling
As more members return to traveling on business trips, to visit family and for vacation, the last thing they want to worry about while away from home is how to get good health care. That’s why beginning in August Kaiser Permanente HMO and EPO members will have access to Cigna’s national network of physicians and providers, should they need emergency or urgent care during their travels away from home.
This new agreement with Cigna’s U.S. provider network and our new kp.org/getcare options, which provide 24/7 access to care by Kaiser Permanente health care professionals by phone or video, members will have even more ways to get care how and when they need it – virtually and in person.
