Medical Plan Information
Aetna and Inova have formed a unique partnership to offer your medical plan, which includes programs and resources that can help you lead a healthier life and become a more informed health care consumer.
Here are a few basic things to remember about your medical plan:
A provider network of about 1.2 million health care professionals and more than 5,700 hospitals* throughout the U.S.
Not having to choose a PCP, nor do you need referrals to visit specialists.
Aetna Institutes of Excellence and Institutes of Quality are part of the provider network.
The Aetna Institutes are a network of high-performing hospitals, clinics and health care facilities that offer specialized care. These institutes focus on bariatric, cardiac and orthopedic surgeries, as well as on transplant support and infertility services.
*Information as of September 1, 2021.
Aetna Institutes of Excellence help patients who are facing a transplant or going through treatment for infertility. To be selected, a health care facility must meet quality criteria for:
- Number of procedures
- Success rates
- Cost-effective care
- How often patients return to the hospital
- Rates of complications
Aetna Institutes of Quality provide bariatric, cardiac and orthopedic procedures. We select hospitals that meet certain standards of quality and cost efficiency. We measure many factors, such as:
- How satisfied patients are
- Level of care
- How often people return to the hospital after surgery
To see a list of facilities and specialists, visit the provider search tool and follow the prompts to enter your search criteria.

New to the plan and your doctor not in the network? Already getting treatment?
It’s rare, but it can happen. That’s why we include the Transition of Care provisions with the plan. If you are a new plan entrant and already in an active course of treatment through a doctor who’s not in your new plan’s network, you may be able to continue seeing that doctor at in-network rates for an additional 90 days after the plan begins. That will give you enough time to finish your treatment or find a new doctor in the network.
Examples of those who qualify for Transition of Care:
- Pregnant women in the 2nd or 3rd trimester or newly delivered mothers
- Cancer patients receiving chemotherapy
- Those receiving kidney dialysis
To find out more about the Transition of Care process, please call Member Services at 1-888-236-6249.
