Using your Insurance Guide

In the event of a non-emergency injury or sickness, the covered student must first visit the Saddleback Health Center located in SSC 177. The Health Center will provide treatment or give a referral to seek care off campus. Eligible expenses incurred for medical care or treatment rendered outside the Health Center for which no referral is obtained may be excluded from coverage. For more information and hours visit the Health center webpage: www.saddleback.edu/shc or call (949) 582-4606.

To find a PPO provider, call (800) 468-4343 or visit www.cigna.com. Using a non-PPO, (also known as an out-of-network provider) will increase the cost of services. 

Claims or benefits questions call (800) 468-4343 or email riainfo@relationinsurance.com

You should keep your health insurance ID cards with you at all times. 

Dental and vision insurance coverage are not included in this health plan.
