Kaiser Collaboration With Cigna For Care While Traveling

Kaiser Permanente is entering a new collaboration with Cigna to deliver more convenient access to care while traveling.

Kaiser Permanente will launch a new feature in August that will give members that are away from home access to Cigna’s national network of physicians and providers, should you need emergency or urgent care during your travels.

Coupled with the virtual Get Care Now service, which gives you 24/7 access to care from Kaiser Permanente health care professionals by phone and video, members will have even more ways to get care when and how you need it — virtually and in person.
