SMU Plan Benefits

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

Your Aetna plan benefits and forms

Knowing more about your plan can help you get the most from your benefits and covered services. Find your plan’s Summary of Benefits, Formulary (list of covered drugs) and other coverage details below. Your member ID card shows your plan’s name. See a word or term you don't know? Check our glossary.

Review your Evidence of Coverage (EOC) to learn about comprehensive plan details, and your rights and responsibilities. You can request a copy of your Evidence of Coverage if you need one.

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.

Complete these forms with your Medication Therapy Management (MTM) providers, and update them (as needed) with every doctor, pharmacist, nurse or caregiver you see. Take notes with your Medication Action Plan to remember medical advice, important things to do and questions to ask. Use your Personal Medication List to save and update your medication history.

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 and 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

2023 plan year

You have an Aetna MedicareSM PPO plan that gives you the flexibility to see any provider, in or out of network, at the same cost, according to the costs listed on your plan benefits summary. They just have to be licensed, eligible to receive Medicare payments and willing to accept your plan. 

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

2022 plan year

You’re enrolled in an Aetna Medicare ℠ HMO plan

Your Aetna Medicare ℠ plan is an HMO plan. This requires you to stay within your network of providers to receive coverage except in urgent or emergency situations. View our network of doctors, hospitals or other providers.

Please call us or see your Evidence of Coverage for more information. 

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