COVID-19 Addition to Care

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and, as additional option for care, your Ascend To Wholeness Healthcare Plan’s (Plan) telehealth coverage has been expanded to include the following care as of March 1, 2020. 

Telehealth – (Includes phone and email visits)
1. Care by Any In-network Provider – As of 3/1/2020, the telehealth benefit has been expanded beyond the Plan’s current telehealth preferred provider - Amwell.  This service may be offered by any of your current physicians, therapists, etc. who are in-network and it will be covered.

2. Care by Any Type of Clinician – This benefit is no longer limited to general medical care, general pediatric care, behavioral health therapy, psychiatry, and lactation consultations.  The clinician, however, needs to be in-network, have the appropriate technology in place and be able to bill correctly, as well as being a licensed provider type covered by the Plan.

3. Your telehealth co-pay remains at $0 for both the Access and Accelerate plans. 

 For more information contact Member Services at (888) 276–4732.

Aetna has added an indicator within their provider lookup tool to identify/filter searches based on providers offering telemedicine. Aetna is working quickly to identify providers with telemedicine availability but it may take time to update their systems.
