Medicare PPO for nonpar providers
Increased membership projected in our Aetna Medicare Plan (PPO)
We are projecting an increase in membership in our Medicare Advantage (MA) PPO plans on a national basis. Our MA PPO plan members have the flexibility of seeing either nonparticipating or participating providers who are eligible to receive payment from Medicare. Several large employers have already signed on to cover their Medicare-eligible retirees under these MA PPO plans. As a result, you may see an increase in patients with Aetna Medicare Plan (PPO) coverage. Learn more (PDF, 1.1 MB).
