General Information

 

Cigna SureFit is a new plan offering that builds networks around local physician and hospital groups and provides our customers with access to personal, patient-centered care.  In Raleigh, UNC Health Care is the major participating health system.

               

Please do not send claims directly to Cigna SureFit.  All Cigna SureFit claims must be sent to HNS. Please ignore the claims billing address on the member ID card or any address given to you on the telephone when verifying eligibility and benefits. You are under contract as a participating Cigna SureFit provider through HNS and our instructions for filing claims supersede information given to you by Cigna SureFit Representatives.

  

If you have any questions concerning Cigna SureFit, please contact your HNS Service Representative at (877) 426-2411 before calling Cigna SureFit.

Referral from PCP Required

 

Because this plan is an HMO, referral from PCP is required for all chiropractic (and any other specialist) visits. However, NO referral info is required to be included on the claim form. Instead, the patient's health care record must include evidence of the PCP referral.

 

Chiropractors can confirm referrals by using one of the following options:

  • The PCP's written referral presented by the patient.
  • Calling Cigna Customer Service at 1.866.494.2111 and choose the prompt for specialist referral.

Subscriber ID Cards

 

Subscriber ID cards may or may not display the Cigna standard name/logo, but will clearly state Cigna SureFit and display the UNC HEALTH ALLIANCE/UNC HEALTH CARE name/logo.

  

As with almost all HMO products, there is NO out-of-network benefit.  This product was built for the UNC Health Care system.
