Notice to faculty and staff enrolled with CIGNA
As described by us in your 2004 Open Enrollment packet, we anticipated CIGNA covering some limited services provided by UNH Health Services. Unfortunately, implementation of this coverage by CIGNA has been delayed. This means that faculty and staff who are participants in CIGNA and choose to access UNH Health Services for acute care will need to pay the full cost of service out-of-pocket. You will receive additional information on available services and cost when coverage is finalized through CIGNA. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
