Savings, Choices & True Value

Preferred provider networks combine money-saving incentives and easy-to-use tools to help your employees make smarter decisions about health care and how to use their benefits.

  • More than 17,000 providers (nearly 94% of South Carolina physicians)

Cigna and Additional National Network Access

PAI offers network solutions to meet the needs of your employees based outside South Carolina or to use when traveling out of state. The PAI team helps analyze data to put together the best combination of access and savings for your group, including Cigna.

PAI works with employer groups to find the best network coverage and the greatest savings, whether employees live in South Carolina or anywhere in the U.S.
