Voluntary plans

Yes. If your plan includes a health screening benefit and it hasn’t been used yet this year, you can use the benefit for COVID-19 testing if needed. The claim can be filed the same way as any other health screening benefit. Aetna will pay claims received after March 1, 2020, regardless of the date of service. COVID-19 will also remain on our list of covered health screening benefits.

Please see below for each plan:


  • The Aetna Hospital Indemnity Plan includes benefits if you need to be hospitalized due to COVID-19, such as hospital admission and daily stay.
  • The Aetna Accident Plan covers accidents and therefore does not pay benefits for COVID-19 or any other illness, unless the plan includes the inpatient sickness rider.
  • The Aetna Critical Illness Plan does not include COVID-19 as a covered condition. However, if a covered condition occurs while being treated for COVID-19, these benefits will cover that condition.

Yes. Aetna's Accident plans include coverage for Telemedicine visits either as a specific Telemedicine benefit (newer Accident plans) or as an Initial or Follow-up Office Visit benefit (older Accident plans).

Yes, Aetna will waive the timeframe for care a member receives related to an accident that’s postponed due to COVID-19. Member must be covered at the time of care and care must be received by June 30, 2021.

The Aetna Fixed Indemnity Plan includes benefits if you need care and treatment related to COVID-19, such as hospital admissions, daily stays, office visits, telemedicine visits, diagnostic testing, x-ray and laboratory services.
