Aetna Medicare Rx Plan (PDP): Exceptions, Appeals and Grievances
We understand the importance of having the coverage you need — and that includes your prescription drugs. If you're taking a medication that's not currently covered by your Aetna Medicare Rx® Plan (PDP), you have several options:
- If you, your appointed representative or your prescriber would like to initiate a coverage determination or exception request, please fill out the necessary information in the secure online form and submit it when complete. Complete the electronic form for a coverage determination or an exception.
- If you received a denial to your coverage determination or exception request, you can appeal to have Aetna Medicare make a decision on the benefits you feel you are entitled to receive. Complete the electronic Aetna Medicare Rx Plan Redetermination (Appeals) form.
- For grievances to address your complaints or problems, you may contact our Member Services Department at the number on the back of your member ID card or complete the online grievance form. Complete the electronic grievances form.
