What Do Aetna Medicare Advantage Plans Offer?

By Nadia-Elysse Harris
Aetna Medicare Advantage plans offer a number of medical and non-medical benefits that original Medicare does not.

Aetna Medicare Advantage plans vary based on your location, but many plans offer opportunities to make access to your day-to-day necessities as simple as possible. 

Generally, Medicare Advantage plans offer private health insurance through Medicare and provide common benefits that original Medicare does not. Aetna is one of the most popular Medicare Advantage providers, with a clear focus on your overall well-being. 

Medical benefits on Aetna Medicare Advantage

Aetna Medicare Advantage plans include Health Maintenance Organization Plans (HMOs), Preferred Provider Organization Plans (PPOs), Special Needs Plans (SNPs), Dual-Eligible Special Needs Plans (DSNP), and Health Maintenance Organization-Point Of Service Plans (HMO-POS). 

While original Medicare does not cover vision and hearing care, many of Aetna’s Medicare Advantage plans do. Several of Aetna’s plans also include routine dental care and Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage. Some plans even include prescription home delivery, 24/7 access to Aetna’s “Ask a Nurse” phone hotline, and a flu shot benefit. 

Non-medical benefits on Aetna Medicare Advantage

One of the major selling points for Medicare Advantage plans are the non-medical benefits that they often include. Aetna’s non-medical Medicare Advantage benefits are part of the company’s “Resources For Living” program. 

Under Aetna Medicare Advantage, you may be eligible to receive home maintenance, help with daily caregiving needs, recreational activities, and volunteer opportunities. Some plans also offer fitness benefits through SilverSneakers, over-the-counter benefits like vitamins and cold medicine, and a meal delivery service.
