Plan benefits & forms

Medicare plans have many different details and forms, so we’ve organized everything together into one convenient place.

The Retired Employees Health Program (REHP) Medicare Open Access PPO follows the Medicare Part B deductible. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announces the deductible for the following year in the Fall. You will receive a letter in December advising you of your 2024 deductible. As a reminder, your deductible resets every year. Beginning January 1, 2024, you will be subject to the 2024 Medicare Part B annual deductible.


Medicare Open Access PPO  


Also known as the Aetna MedicareSM Plan (PPO), which is a Medicare Advantage plan with an open access feature.

Give someone permission to manage your care

Call us with your caregiver or another person on the line to give them permission to speak with us (just one time, while on that call). Or you can mail us a completed Protected Health Information (PHI) form to give them permission on a regular basis.

You can choose someone to do all of the above. This person is your appointed representative. An appointment is good for one year from the date that you and your representative sign an Appointment of Representative form. 


Fill out the form below and mail it to us. Any time your representative makes a request for you, they should send us a signed copy. You'll leave Aetna Medicare and go to the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) website if you link to the form.

We help you get medically necessary health care services in the most cost-effective way under your health plan. And we work with you and doctors to evaluate services for medical appropriateness, timeliness and cost. 


Specifically, we: 

  • Base our decisions on appropriateness of care, service and plan coverage 

  • Use nationally recognized guidelines and resources to make changes 

  • Don’t pay or reward providers, employees or others for denying coverage or care 

  • Focus on reviewing the risks of members who aren’t fully using certain services

Doctors and health care companies continuously develop new technologies. This can include anything from a new procedure to a new way to use a device.


When we learn about a new technology, we:

  • Carefully review the latest information and ask experts for their opinions

  • Compare the information with well-known standards

  • Base all of our decisions on making sure you have the right care and services

You’re enrolled in a Medicare Open Access PPO Plan with Extended Service Area (ESA):


This type of plan gives you freedom of access. You pay the same cost for any doctor or hospital, according to the costs listed on your plan benefits summary. The provider must be eligible to receive Medicare payment and accept your plan. 99.79% of providers used by REHP members already accept the plan.*


View our network of doctors, hospitals and providers


With a PPO plan with ESA, you have the option to choose a primary care physician. But when we know who your doctor is, we can better support your care.


Please call us or see your Evidence of Coverage for more information, including the cost share for out‐of‐network services.


*Based on August 2020 report comparing REHP member utilization of providers known to accept the Aetna Medicare Advantage plan.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services periodically issues National Coverage Determinations. They issue these when a service’s or drug’s coverage rules change.
