This section explains key terms you’ll see in our Provider and Pharmacy Directory.

  • Providers are health care professionals and support providers such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, and other people who provide care and services. Services include medical care, long-term services and supports, supplies, prescription drugs, equipment and other services.
    • The term providers also includes facilities such as hospitals, clinics, and other places that provide medical services, medical equipment, and long-term services and supports.
    • Providers that are a part of our plan's network are called network providers.
  • Network providers are the providers that have contracted with us to provide services to members in our plan. The providers in our network generally bill us directly for care they give you. When you see a network provider, you usually pay nothing for covered services.
  • A Primary Care Provider (PCP) is a family practitioner; general practitioner; geriatrician; certified nurse practitioner; internist; obstetrician/gynecologist; pediatrician or physician assistant who gives you routine health care. Your PCP will keep your medical records and get to know your health needs over time.
  • Specialists are doctors who provide health care services for a specific disease or part of the body. There are many kinds of specialists. Here are a few examples:
    • Oncologists care for patients with cancer.
    • Cardiologists care for patients with heart conditions.
    • Orthopedists care for patients with certain bone, joint, or muscle conditions.
  • You also have access to a care manager and a care team that you choose. Your PCP will work closely with your care manager and care team.
    • Your care manager helps you manage all your providers and services. He or she works with your care team to make sure you get the care you need.
    • Your care team includes you, your family members, caregivers, care manager, PCP, specialists and anyone else you want included. Everyone on the care team works together to make sure your care is coordinated. This means that they make sure tests and labs are done once and the results are shared with the appropriate providers. It also means that your PCP should know all medicines you take so that he or she can reduce any negative effects. Your PCP will always get your permission before sharing your medical information with other providers.

You can get services from any provider who is in our network and accepting new members.

First, you will need to choose a Primary Care Provider, or PCP. If you do not choose a PCP, we will assign one to you. You may be able to have a specialist act as your PCP. The specialist will have to first agree to do so. If you want a specialist to be your PCP, talk to your care manager. Your care manager will work with the specialist to become your PCP. You may also want to contact the specialist directly to discuss your needs.

To choose a PCP, go to the list of providers on page 1 and:

  • choose a provider that you use now, or
  • choose a provider who has been recommended by someone you trust, or
  • choose a provider whose offices are easy for you to get to.

If you want help in choosing a PCP, please call Member Services at 1-855-364-0974, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. TTY users should call 711. The call is free. Or, visit www.aetnabetterhealth.com/ohio.

If you have questions about whether any service or care that you want or need is covered, talk to your care manager or call Member Services to ask before you get the service or care.

You may be able to get long-term services and supports (LTSS) which are also called Medicaid “waiver services”, such as home health care, adult day care services and specialized medical equipment as an Aetna Better Health of Ohio member. Long-term services and supports give assistance to help you stay at home instead of going to a nursing home or hospital. If you have questions about LTSS or to see if you qualify, call your care manager.

 

You must get all of your covered services from providers within our network. These providers have an agreement to work with us and provide you services. We call these providers "network providers."

The exceptions to this rule are when you need long-term nursing home care, urgent or emergency care, or dialysis and cannot get to a provider in the plan, such as when you are away from home. Also, for a specific period of time after your enrollment with Aetna Better Health of Ohio, you can see your out-of-network physicians and other service providers, including nursing homes and assisted living providers, home health nurses, aides and LTSS or "waiver services" providers. You can also go outside the plan if Aetna Better Health of Ohio gives you permission first. Call Member Services to ask for the use of providers outside of our network, so we can make arrangements for you.

  • You may change providers within the network at any time. If you have been going to one network provider, you do not have to keep going to that same provider. If for any reason you want to change your PCP, you must first call Member Services at 1-855-364-0974 (TTY: 711), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ask for the change. The change will take effect immediately upon receipt of the request. You will receive a new member ID card within 14 days. If you need to see your PCP before you get your new member ID card, your PCP’s office can call us to verify your eligibility. If you are thinking about changing your PCP, talk to your care manager.
  • Aetna Better Health of Ohio works with all the providers in our network to accommodate the needs of people with disabilities. As applicable, the list of network providers in this Directory includes information about the accommodations they provide. If you need to see a provider and are not sure if they offer the accommodations you need, Aetna Better Health of Ohio can help you. Talk to your care manager for assistance.

This Directory includes providers of both Medicare and Medicaid services. It is arranged by provider type, region, county and city. The regions listed are:

  • Central (Columbus area)

The counties in each region are listed in the table on page I. The Out of Region section lists providers that are not located in one of our regions but are in our network and may be close to you. They are located in counties or states that are near our regions. For example, members in the Northwest region may choose to see a provider in our network who is located in Michigan. You may go to these providers listed in the Out of Region section since they are part of our network.

To find a provider, first look for the provider type. Then look for your region, county and the city you live in (or one near you) and find a provider near you.
