Transition of Care
For fully-insured plans, as required by law, Aetna’s California addendum to its standard Transition of Care Coverage policy provides for completion of covered services for:
If any employees require frequent or continuing consultation with a specialist physician for ongoing covered care, the employee should contact his or her current PCP who can help arrange transfer of that care to a similar specialist in the Aetna network.  For a limited time and when appropriate, Aetna will cover certain ongoing medical care for a specified period at the preferred level of benefits, rendered by a specialist who no longer participates in the network.
