network health care providers
Physicians, clinics, hospitals* or other medical care providers
|Search Cigna's Shared Administration PPO network or call Cigna (800) 768-4695. |
Locate Motion Picture Television Fund (MPTF) Health Centers and physicians in Southern California. MPTF providers participate in Cigna's PPO network, but because MPTF providers are exclusive to members of the entertainment industry, MPTF providers are listed separately from Cigna’s online provider directory.
Nominate a provider for Cigna: If a health care provider is not currently in the Cigna network, you may nominate the provider by submitting a completed Cigna Provider Nomination Form. However, please note that the submission of a provider nomination form does not guarantee that the health care provider will be added to the Cigna network.
