Cigna Corporation, a global health service company, has added Iora Health, an innovative primary care provider group, to its rapidly expanding Medicare Advantage (MA) network. Cigna Medicare Advantage customers will have access to Iora’s primary care practices under the Iora Primary Care brand across the country, effective immediately.

The agreement applies to most Iora locations where Cigna offers a MA plan, including the greater Denver, Charlotte, Houston, Atlanta, and Tucson areas, with a total of 27 practices in these locations.

Iora specializes in primary care for older adults on Medicare, making it easier for MA patients to access health care, whether in the doctor’s office or the comfort of their home. Since Iora’s care is built on authentic relationships, it provides its patients with longer appointments, in-person or virtual. Every patient works with a provider and has access to a robust team including a health coach, nurse and behavioral health specialist to help optimize health and wellness.
