Benefits & services
We manage your covered benefits by:
- Working with your doctor to decide what care is needed
- Deciding what care is covered
A health plan doctor or provider will provide your care. You an choose your own personal doctor as long as it is in our network. We contract with a select network of providers for your care. We check our doctors and hospitals often to make sure you get the care you deserve. There may be times when a network provider is not available to give you the care you need. You can go to a provider outside the Aetna Better Health network only if: (1) the care is needed; and (2) there are no Aetna Better Health providers who can give you the care needed. We have the right to say where the service can be given when no Aetna Better Health provider can give you the care needed. The care must be preauthorized before your visit. The practitioner that wants to give you the care should ask for this preauthorization.
We only cover care or supplies that are medically needed by you. We decide medical need by looking at the accepted standards of care. We decide whether the care meets these standards.
Your Member Handbook gives you more information on covered benefits, including things that are excluded from coverage.
