Why should you choose a primary care doctor?

A primary care doctor can help you get and stay healthy. He or she gets to know your medical history and sees you for preventive care.  And when it comes to health decisions, he or she can help guide you. A primary care doctor can make your health care experience better.

If you are part of an Aetna Premier Care Network Plus plan, in some areas, you may have a special Aetna Whole Health(SM) team of doctors that works together to coordinate your care. Your employer can tell you more. 

Provider quality is important to us

Provider quality is a key part of the Aetna Premier Care Network. Most of our specialists and hospitals in the network have met certain measures of medical care quality and efficiency, such as lower-than-average complication rates after surgery and lower-than-average hospital readmission rates. 

3. Compare costs.  

It’s easy to find cost estimates for services, such as office visits, tests and surgeries.

Know before you go

Our tools allow you to compare costs among providers for physician office visits, surgical procedures, and diagnostic tests and procedures. You’ll be able to understand what a visit or procedure might cost before you make an appointment.

Cost estimates are based on your health plan, and take into account your deductible, copays, coinsurance, plan limits and HRA or HSA dollars.

Other ways to save

To spend health care dollars wisely, consider these options:

  • If your health concern is not life threatening, visit an in-network urgent care center or walk-in clinic, rather than an emergency department.
  • Check prescription drug costs. Generics can cost less than name-brand ones.
  • Preventive care is covered 100%, so stay up to date on your annual exams, screenings and other preventive benefits. This will help you stay ahead of potential health problems.
  • Take advantage of any healthy living discounts offered by your plan.
