AWH.

plan. You do NOT get to pick THIS Select Plan if you live in a county listed below.
• Bexar, Collin, Comal, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Ft. Bend, Guadalupe, Harris, Hays, Kendall,
Montgomery, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant, Travis or Williamson Counties.

network. A PCP is recommended, but not mandatory.

not the plan for you.

Avoiding and Handling Surprise Bills
• Sometimes members receive surprise bills after receiving care, but there are
ways to avoid getting a surprise bill:
• When planning for medical care, make sure all doctors, facilities, laboratories,
and imaging centers are in the TRS-ActiveCare network.
• An out-of-network provider could send the patient a “balance bill” for the
charges not paid for by TRS-ActiveCare.
• Get the required referrals and prior authorizations before receiving care.
• Find out your costs before getting care.
Use the online cost estimator through Aetna
Navigator or call Aetna directly.
• If you get a surprise bill, Aetna is here to help.
• Compassion Consultants can contact the
providers to try to negotiate on a
member’s behalf.

What is the Aetna Health Connections
Disease Management program?
SM
A program that identifies
and monitors members with chronic
conditions and effectively engages
them to close gaps in care* by:
•
•
•
Using change-management techniques
combined with evidence-based clinical tools
Developing individualized actions that motivate and
empower members to engage in behaviors that reduce
their health risks
Engaging physicians when critical care gaps are identified
Designed to help
improve health
outcomes and lower
costs for plan
sponsors and
members.
* “Gaps in care” refers to a broad range of potential needs that prevent members from attaining their optimal health and wellness
potential, e.g., absence of a caregiver in the home, inability to fill prescriptions due to problems with co-pays, and difficulty finding a
home care company to provide services. The term will be used in this context throughout this presentation.
