The Aetna plans cover the same type of services and prescription drugs, but there are some differences. For example:
- Aetna HealthSave (HSA)—The plan pays 90% of your eligible in-network expenses after you meet your annual deductible. If you use an out-of-network provider, the plan pays 70% of recognized charges after you meet the higher out-of-network deductible.
- Aetna HealthSave Basic—The plan pays 80% of your eligible in-network expenses after you meet your annual deductible. If you use an out-of-network provider, the plan pays 60% of recognized charges after you meet the higher out-of-network deductible.
Finding quality care in-network is easy and will save you money. If you use an out-of-network provider, you may be responsible for the entire difference between what the provider bills and the recognized charge [PDF]. That difference can be large. And that additional amount does not count toward your out-of-pocket maximum.
Be sure to review the prescription drug benefits so you know how medications you and your family take are covered. Also, if you take preventive medications and you enroll in the Aetna HealthSave (HSA) plan or the Aetna HealthSave Basic plan, you should know that some medications for certain conditions [PDF] are not subject to the plan deductible.
The Health Care 101 tip sheet [PDF] breaks down the benefits jargon to help you understand your medical plan details.
With the Kaiser HMO plan (California only), you pay copays for most eligible services. This means you pay a flat fee each time you see your doctor or fill a prescription for most services. You must use Kaiser doctors and facilities and your care is subject to referrals from your primary care physician. Keep in mind that the types of services that are covered under the Kaiser plan can differ from those covered under Aetna plans, so be sure to check any specific services that are important to you if you are considering enrolling in the Kaiser plan.
