NYUPN Clinically Integrated Network, Cigna Link for Accountable Care Initiative

Cigna is launching a collaborative accountable care initiative, its version of accountable care organizations, with NYUPN Clinically Integrated Network, an organization comprising all clinical faculty affiliated with NYU Langone Medical Center and the University Physicians Network in New York City.

This CAC initiative will cover roughly 24,000 patients with a Cigna health plan who receive care from one of NYUPN's primary care physicians. The program is effective July 1.

NYU Langone Medical Center registered nurses will serve as care coordinators as part of the CAC initiative, and they will work with Cigna case managers to ensure collaboration between the two groups. The coordinators will use patient-specific data from Cigna to identify patients who may be at risk for readmission or who are overdue for important screenings.

Cigna will pay NYUPN providers for medical care and care coordination services; providers can also share in any achieved savings if they meet quality and cost targets.
