    • If it appears that you need emergency care, the nurse will direct you to call 911 or other emergency services in your area.

    If you are directed to seek immediate medical attention, CIGNA will provide your primary care physician with the details (if you have a PCP coordinating your care).  This information becomes a part of your medical records to update your health status and to alert your doctor to the need for any necessary follow-up care.
