While medical plans typically cover a serious illness, they don't cover additional financial costs that come with it. The Aetna Critical Illness Plan can help.
A smart way to help you with your out-of-pocket expenses
Recovering from a critical illness can be hard - and expensive. Most medical plans aren't designed to cover costs like child care and transportation to doctor's appointments. Unfortunately, these expenses can come at a time when you're missing work and your paycheck. An Aetna Critical Illness Plan can help you protect your finances.
Cash to help pay your bills
The Aetna Critical Illness Plan pays cash benefits directly to you when you are diagnosed with a covered condition.
You can use the money to pay for everyday expenses like mortgage payments, day care or utility bills. Or you can use the cash for expenses like coinsurance or to help cover your medical plan's deductible. It's up to you.
Benefits are payable no matter what other medical coverage you might have. So if you get sick, you won't have to add the cost of recovery to your list of worries.
When you sign up with Aetna, you'll get:
Simplified claims submission. If you're an Aetna medical member, we can use your medical claims' information to help speed the processing of your critical illness claims.
Online claim access when you sign up for the Aetna Navigator® secure member website.
The plan includes features to meet your needs:
This plan provides limited benefits. The benefit payments are not intended to cover the full cost of medical care. Members are responsible for making sure the providers' bills get paid. These benefits are paid in addition to any other health coverage members may have.
