Mission Health reached a deal with health insurer Cigna before their contract lapsed.
The Asheville hospital system reach a deal with the insurance company on October 30, just shy of the November 1 deadline.
The multi-year agreement ensures that all Cigna patients will remain in-network. This deal covers Mission Health, an operating division of HCA Healthcare, which includes the surrounding five rural hospitals. Only Mission Hospital was in danger of going out of network.
