Aetna is transforming health care by partnering with local doctors, nurses and other providers to make sure members receive the right care at the right time and in the right place. Aetna is committed to connecting members to coordinated, accessible, affordable, and personalized health care right where they live. Aetna model is called “value-based care”; where physicians are paid based on quality of care not quantity.
Aetna currently offers HMO, PPO, HMO with Travel Advantage, and PPO with Explorer plans. Aetna Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) plans are in 39 states with market expansions.
Portability elements of Aetna plans consist of ER and urgent care in the United States and worldwide; value-add travel discounts on nationally recognized brand-name products and services; national pharmacy network of pharmacies and seamless medical network of providers throughout the United States. Covered plan services do not require Primary Care Provider (PCP) referrals for specialist care. The visitor travel program allows members to remain in their plan for an additional 6 months when they are travelling outside the plan’s service area. Without the visitor traveler program, CMS mandates that members be disenrolled if they are outside the plan’s service area for more than 6 months. Travel Pass is a snapshot of member specific health care elements such as selected PCP, medication history, vaccine history and other information. Aetna plan offerings and considerations may vary by plan and by geographies. Provider participation varies by state.
