Health insurer Cigna has introduced electronic contracting to ease and speed enrollment of medical and behavioral health physicians, and small practices of five or fewer physicians.

Providers wanting to enter into a first-time standard contract with CIGNA can use a secure Web site e to complete and sign documents, cutting enrollment time in half and saving money according to the Bloomfield, Conn.-based payer.

Cigna adds more than 20,000 new physicians and small practices a year and the process generates more than a million pieces of paper. For more information, call 1800-882-4462 to receive an email with a URL to complete, electronically sign, and submit the enrollment.
