If a time comes when you’re dealing with more complex health challenges, you can be assigned a nurse to work with you over the phone on an ongoing basis. Or if you have an ongoing health concern like diabetes, heart disease, asthma and low back pain, your nurse may call to check in from time to time. These services are included as part of your plan.
You may also get a letter or phone call from us, depending on your needs. Don’t forget, your caller ID may not say Aetna when we call. That depends on your phone carrier.
Care that works for you
As always, your care should be decided by you, your family and your doctor. But with more information, you can make better-informed decisions about your health.
Your conversations are completely confidential. We don’t share this information with your employer, and we keep all information confidential as required by law.
Receive access to registered nurses who can answer questions on a variety of health topics. Available on a 24/7 basis, the nurses are there any time you need help making an informed health care decision.
