Medical Plans

You have up to five medical plans to choose from, depending on where you live. Some plan features are standard. For example, all of your options cover preventive care at no cost to you; all offer generous coverage for prescription medications; and all provide the financial protection you need in the event of a major illness or injury. In addition, Cigna and Kaiser provide coverage for in vitro fertilization (IVF). See a detailed plan comparison [PDF].

Other features may be unique to a particular plan. Picking the right plan depends on your healthcare needs and your budget.

The NVIDIA HSA, NVIDIA HSA Plus, and NVIDIA PPO medical plans use Cigna’s Open Access Plus (OAP) Network of hospitals and physicians for in-network services. Participants in MA use the Open Access Plus—CareLink (OAPC) Network. OAP and OAPC participating providers are found on the Cigna website at

The Kaiser HSA and Kaiser HMO use their own network of doctors and facilities. Find participating providers on the Kaiser website at
