Plan Overview

Transition of Care

Transition of Care coverage may allow a member who is receiving treatment to continue the treatment for a limited time at a preferred plan benefit level.

To request coverage, you will need to complete and submit a Transition of Care Request form [PDF].

You will need to complete and submit a separate request form for each provider caring for you.

Submit the completed forms to Aetna by fax to: 1-800-228-1318

Understanding Precertification

Some medical care (for example: Room and Board, miscellaneous expenses for Hospital and Treatment Facilities, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Hospice, Home Health Care, and Private Duty Nursing) require approval from Aetna ("precertification") before you can get coverage.

Under the Aetna EPO, non-emergency admissions or outpatient services must be precertified 14 days prior to the confinement or scheduled date of treatment. Emergency stays should be certified within 48 hours of admission.

If you visit an in-network doctor or facility, the provider will contact Aetna to authorize services on your behalf.

If you visit a doctor or facility outside the network, you must contact Aetna for precertification. See your member ID card for a number you can call to preauthorize your care.

You can check to verify if a procedure requires preauthorization by calling Member Services at 1-866-244-1573.
