Previous agreement expired in March 2020
Cigna and Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System announced a multi-year agreement ensuring Cigna customers will have access to Spartanburg Regional’s hospitals, facilities, and physician network for quality care. The new agreement is effective January 1, 2022. According to the Spartanburg Herald-Journal, the hospital system’s previous agreement with Cigna expired March 31, 2020, and Cigna was dropped from its network on June 1, 2020. The contract affected only commercial plans, as Cigna’s Medicare Advantage plans remained in the network.
Paul Butler, senior vice president of Spartanburg Regional, stated, “We appreciate our relationship with Cigna and look forward to working with them in the future to bring greater value to the Upstate community.”
Charles Pitts, Cigna market president for the Carolinas said, “The collaboration we have with Spartanburg Regional puts affordable, predictable, high-quality care in reach for all those we jointly serve and puts the interests of our customers and employer clients first.”
