Cigna OAP-IN (www.cigna.com)

The OAP-IN plan offers the flexibility to see any Cigna Open Access Plus (OAP) national network provider. This plan has in-network coverage only.  Only emergency and urgent care services are covered outside of the network. The amount the plan pays for covered services is based on the allowed amount. Your out-of-pocket costs may include office visit copayments, deductibles and coinsurance.  Referrals are NOT required under this plan.

Cigna OAP-IN Summary of Benefits and Coverage

If you have questions or need assistance, contact the PSA Benefits Hotline at 1-877-716-6618 or email Loyola@psafinancial.com.

Loyola University Maryland is a religious institution and has a (birth control coverage) exemption as a “religious employer” and prescriptions for contraceptives are excluded on the Loyola medical plan.  However, these services are available directly from Cigna. Access the benefit by providing your insurance card as you normally do to an in-network pharmacy (services and procedures will not be covered out-of-network). Cigna will in turn arrange payment directly to the pharmacy. Contact Cigna directly at 1-800-244-6224 for additional information.

Mental Health/ Substance Abuse

The Plan provides inpatient, intermediate and outpatient care. Please see the OAP-IN Summary of Benefits and Coverage for more information.

Prescription Drug Plan

Participants in the plan automatically participate in the prescription drug plan. You can choose between retail and mail order options. Your prescription benefits are structured to take advantage of the savings associated with generic drugs.  With Restricted Generics, you will save the most by choosing generic drugs (when available) versus brand-name drugs. Unless you doctor writes “Dispense as Written” of DAW on your brand-name drug prescription, you will pay both the non-preferred brand copay plus the cost difference between the generic and brand-name drug.

Health care reform under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) requires plans to cover certain preventive medications and products at 100% or no cost-share ($0) to you. Visit mycigna.com to learn more about how the plan covers preventive medications.

If you are taking maintenance prescription medication, we encourage you to investigate the Cigna Home Delivery Pharmacy. Members can sign up for mail order today by calling 1-800-244-6224 or through mycigna.com
