Use your benefits, keep costs in check
Manage your plan:
Take advantage of your members-only website. Once you have an Aetna health plan, register for your Aetna Navigator website. Log in to find doctors, check claims, track health care costs and more.
Make choices that work for you:
In-network care can save you money. When you need health care, visit doctors and hospitals in the network. These health care providers have agreed to provide services at lower rates to our members. This helps you save.
Within this network, there may be certain hospitals and specialists in your area that have been put into a “special group.” They are in this group because they meet special standards for cost efficiency and some, even for quality. If you choose a provider from this special group, you can pay a lower portion of your medical costs. It all depends on your health plan and what you decide is best for you.
Use your plan features:
Wellness products and discounts come with you plan to help you stay healthy and save.
