No question about it, the choosing of the right doctor is a very big decision because you will want to select:
- A doctor you can trust with your health – and you can afford
- A doctor you can choose not just because the office is nearby
- A doctor who comes with a thumbs-up from a trusted source
Are you willing to do some homework?
Checking for the Cigna Care Designation when visiting your physician to ensure your lowest co-pay is always a good idea and a valuable decision-making tool you can use when it’s time to choose a doctor. New for 2018, if you choose a specialist that is designated, you will perhaps pay a lower copay for that visit (not all UMS plans have this feature).
How does a doctor earn the Cigna Care Designation?
Of course, quality comes first!
Where do I find these doctors?
