RALEIGH, N.C. (December 29, 2023) – WakeMed and Cigna today signed a new, two-year contract that provides in-network access to WakeMed providers for all Cigna commercial plans and Marketplace Exchange (Individual and Family Plan) members. The agreement takes effect January 1, 2024, and comes after several months of very complex negotiations.

This new contract provides Cigna members with in-network access to WakeMed’s growing network of high-value health care services, including all hospitals, outpatient clinics, ambulatory surgery centers, 210 PET Imaging and specialty care physicians. WakeMed Primary Care providers remain in-network under a separate contract.

The well-being of our patients and the community we serve will always be our priority, and this new agreement protects access to care while removing unfair burdens that had been placed on our patients. We are very pleased that we were able to come to a reasonable, equitable agreement with Cigna that ensures uninterrupted care for our valued patients.

WakeMed proudly contracts with a wide variety of managed care plans and insurance companies, while also participating in the government programs of Medicare and Medicaid. For more information about insurance programs we participate in, please see the Insurance We Accept page.
