Shirley Smith, Medicare Advantage Member :
I’ve been an Aetna Medicare Advantage member for about six years. It’s been great for me.
What I like about the Aetna Medicare Advantage plan is – first of all, the cost is reasonable, I’m able to get the prescriptions that I need; I’m able to have the same doctors that I’ve always had; and it just works very well for me.
When I think of Aetna, I think of a safety blanket; and the comfort of knowing that I have what I need, and I can get it when I need it. They make promises, and they do their very best to keep them.
A little over a year ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I’m currently on medication but I’m doing quite well, and the care I’ve gotten has been very good.
Aetna’s care management program works very, very well. My nurse case manager just makes everything great for me. When I get off the phone with her, I feel like a new day. She just makes me feel great. It’s the first time I’ve ever had an insurance company such as Aetna provide someone to navigate me through the whole care system and make me feel as though they care about me.
I don’t see where anything else would be better. All the plans do what they do, but none does it as well as Aetna.
