SALT LAKE CITY, October 28, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--G&A Partners, a leading professional employer organization (PEO) and human resources outsourcing (HRO) provider, announced today that it will offer its PEO clients in Utah a Cigna master health plan.
The G&A-sponsored plan includes eight health-plan designs, including three high-deductible health plans (HDHPs), each with three network options in the Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), Open Access Plus (OAP), or the Local Plus network. Eligible employers with two or more participating employees can now offer their teams between three and five Cigna plan options at competitive composite rates.
Employees that opt for Cigna’s OAP network will be able to access more than one million doctors and can use their insurance at 6,300 hospitals nationwide. Those who opt for the PPO will gain access to Cigna’s national network of providers and every hospital in Utah. Employees who opt for the most affordable coverage plan—Local Plus—will have access to more than 350,000 provider partners and 1,300 hospitals nationwide without the need for a designated primary care physician or a referral.
"We are excited to offer our Utah worksite employees this robust selection of affordable, accessible healthcare options," said John G. Allen, chief revenue officer for G&A Partners. "Insurance prices have been steadily rising and the last thing we want is for people to sacrifice their health because of cost. Anything we can do to reduce that burden on our clients and their employees, at a time when the need for quality healthcare is so great, is a worthwhile investment in our book."
All Cigna plans offered by G&A Partners include "One Guide"—a service that assists members in choosing the most efficient care settings, physicians, and healthcare providers, and health improvement programs, for their unique needs. This service, and access to Cigna’s customer assistance and virtual care services, are available 24/7/365.
Allen said G&A Partners’ life and health broker partners can also access the PEO’s Cigna master health plan and offer it to their clients when those clients choose G&A’s PEO services.
"People today are looking for quality, affordable health insurance options that will provide them with the full gamut of health and wellness services," said Grace Jaén, vice president of health and welfare for G&A Partners. "Our HR, benefits, and payroll administration services, combined with our benefits procurement service, are designed to help businesses grow and prosper—no matter what is happening in the economy."
