Why Choose the Kel​seyC​​are powered by Cigna Plan?

The KelseyCare® health plan integrates the extensive resources of Kelsey-Seybold Clinic and Cigna to create a unique healthcare model that benefits members. Our plan design incentivizes members to select the area's most cost-effective physician network to organize and coordinate their care. KelseyCare is easy for members to understand and encourages them to get the care they need. Our members also receive ongoing reminders for important, cost-saving, preventive care.

The KelseyCare model brings the entire care team together. Patients reap the benefits when care teams are tightly connected. Physicians, nurses, and KelseyCare disease and case management clinicians work together, easily communicating through our unified electronic medical record system. 

Cost-Saving Benefits

In addition, KelseyCare and Cigna collaborate on data-sharing for clinical initiatives, including the prescription drug initiative "RX-QI." This is a unique KelseyCare initiative in which KelseyCare physicians and pharmacists work directly with patients appropriate for generic or therapeutic prescription changes. The program provides direct, hands-on clinic​al assistance to patients in making clinician-approved changes to their medication regimens.
