TARRYTOWN, N.Y. -- ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP (ENTA), the largest practice of board certified Ear, Nose and Throat surgeons and Allergists in the tristate area, and the only clinical team that offers its patients dedicated sub-specialty divisions in laryngology, otology/neuro-otology and sleep care, announced today that it has successfully reached separate third-party insurer agreements with Cigna and North Shore-LIJ CareConnect Insurance Company, Inc.
These new agreements, the former being an extension of a prior contract, and the latter being a new coverage opportunity, are effective July 15 and Aug. 1 respectively. These agreements will ensure that Cigna and CareConnect members across the region will enjoy superior health benefits, at in-network rates, at ENTA’s 41 state-of-the-art offices throughout New York and New Jersey.
ENTA was able to clearly demonstrate to these two insurers that its breadth of services and investment in technology have translated into improved care for each health plan’s members.
The Practice’s cutting edge technology both enhances the patient experience and provides quicker diagnoses. The Cigna and CareConnect agreements come on the heels of a number of other successful healthcare provider new deals or extensions that ENTA has completed or renegotiated in recent months. In total, the Practice maintains negotiated group contracts with over 20 different insurance companies, which in turn enables it to serve the needs of hundreds of thousands of deserving area patients.
“We are very pleased to have signed both a group contract extension with Cigna and a brand new agreement with CareConnect, both of which ensure coverage and continuity of care for our mutual patients with a fair and balanced cost effective delivery model that is locked in for the next several years,” commented Robert Green, M.D., President of ENTA. “It is our distinct pleasure to provide superb medical service, and we are extremely gratified that even more people in New York and New Jersey can now avail themselves of our services,” added Robert A. Glazer, CEO of ENTA.
