Aetna offers several different types of Medicare Advantage plan options, which include:
Aetna Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans have a contracted provider network, which can help keep costs down for approved care. If you enroll in an Aetna Medicare Plan (HMO), you have access to tens of thousands of network providers across the nation, which may include in-network coverage when you travel.
An HMO plan from Aetna may require you to designate a primary care physician and to get a referral to see a specialist.
This plan also gives you access to a network of tens of thousands of health care providers nationwide and the flexibility to see a specialist without a referral from your primary care provider.
An Aetna Medicare Prime Plan (HMO) gives you access to a local provider network. In most situations, you must use network providers, except in the case of receiving out-of-network renal dialysis, urgent care or emergencies.
Aetna Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans give you the benefits of an HMO plan along with the added flexibility to visit in-network and out-of-network providers.
This plan is similar to the Aetna Medicare Plan (PPO) and gives you the flexibility to visit both providers and hospitals that are in and out of the preferred plan network.
Each year, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) release Star Ratings that measure the performance of Medicare Advantage plans.
For 2019, Aetna Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) plans earned an overall weighted average rating of 4 out of 5 stars. The majority of Aetna Medicare plan members are in a plan rated 4 stars or higher out of 5 stars.4
Over eight percent of all Medicare Advantage enrollees in 2018 were enrolled in an Aetna Medicare plan. This accounts for about 1.75 million Medicare Advantage plan beneficiaries.5
