Plan Options Removed
As a result of recent information received from the California Department of Insurance (DOI), Aetna has been asked to remove two plans from their 2016 portfolio. The following plans are no longer available for new or renewing business and have been removed from bpQuote:
For members who have chosen one of these plans for their January to March renewal, an Aetna representative will contact the broker to have the group/member select one of Aetna's many other 2016 plans. For members who have chosen one of these plans for new business January or later, the underwriter will request the member to select a different plan before approval.
In addition, the Silver MC 2000 (+ Silver Savings Plus) plans have received the modification listed below with no change to rates.
Aetna 1-100 will relax their participation requirements for new business beginning with January 1, 2016 effective dates. Under the relaxed participation requirement, only 60% participation is required for groups with 1-100 eligible employees.
View our Medical Underwriting Guidelines for the 60% relaxed participation requirements.
