Lee is married with two children. Recently, Lee’s son, Brian, was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and Lee has been seeking effective care for him ever since. Lee also knows that they have to take care of themselves, too.
Seeing Value in Value-Based Care
While at the doctor, Lee learned about
, which will help ensure Brian gets the best possible care, at the best possible price. Through
Cigna Collaborative Care
, Brian has access to a team of health care experts focused on providing quality, cost-effective care for ASD.
After Brian’s first appointment, Lee could already see the value in the coordinated approach to caring for his condition—in both the treatment received and the cost per visit. Plus, Brian has access to a variety of additional benefits through Cigna, like
speech therapy, too.
A Little Extra Help
At last year’s Wellbeing eXpo, Lee heard about the
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
and decided to give them a call to help balance the demands of work and home life. The EAP also provided free referrals for child care services for Lee’s children.
Taking Advantage of In-Network Care
As part of living well, Lee’s first step was to schedule well-person and well-child exams for the whole family (with recommended immunizations), at their
local in-network doctor
. The exams were free because they’re considered preventive care and they were seeing in-network providers.
Even though Lee hasn’t met the annual deductible for the OAP HSA 1 Plan yet, Lee is using the
Health Savings Account to cover any visit that isn’t considered preventive care.
