    CIGNA OPEN ACCESS PLUS NETWORK PROVIDERS:  In addition to accessing care through the Health and Wellness Center, employees also have the option to seek medical care with providers in the Cigna Open Access Plus Network.  When visiting a provider, we highly recommend members and dependents verify whether the provider is in-network or out-of-network! Search for providers here.  When searching, please make sure to select the Cigna Open Access Plus Network.  Once search results are displayed, you can scroll through names or reference the map with pinned locations. 

     

    ACCESS TO CARE AFTER HOURS: The need to access medical care doesn't always conveniently occur during normal business hours.  If you need to access care outside of the Health and Wellness Hours or your primary care physician hours, it's important to know how to find a provider for your treatment.  Doing a little research in advance could save you money. If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Please click here to see information on the types of after hour care including Well Via Telemedicine (free to all ECISD and their depenents), urgent care centers, hospital ERs and free standing emergency rooms.
