In most areas, certain behavioral health services (e.g. treatment or care for mental disease or illness, alcohol abuse and/or substance abuse)

are managed by an independently contracted organization. This organization makes initial coverage determinations and coordinates referrals;

any behavioral health care referrals will generally be made to providers affiliated with the organization, unless your needs for covered

services extend beyond the capability of these providers. You can receive information regarding the appropriate way to access the

behavioral health care services that are covered under your specific plan by reviewing the information below. As with other coverage

determinations, you may appeal behavioral health care coverage decisions in accordance with the terms of your health plan.

Behavioral health coverage varies depending on the plan. As a member, you may be covered for treatment of mental or nervous conditions,

and/or drug or alcohol abuse problems. Members can determine the type of plan they have by calling Member Services, whose phone

number is listed on your Member ID card.

If you have an emergency, please seek care immediately. However, for routine services, please note the following.

If you have an HMO, QPOS, or Golden Medicare plan, you can access behavioral health services by the following methods:

Calling your primary care physician for referral to the designated behavioral health provider group.

Being referred to your designated behavioral health provider group by your employee assistance or student assistance professional.

Contacting Member Services at the toll-free number on your Member ID card, asking for the name and phone number of your

designated behavioral health provider group, and calling that number directly.

If you have a Managed Choice plan, you can call the phone number on your Member ID card to arrange service.

If you have a PPO (Open Choice) plan, you can call the toll free Member Services number on your Member ID card to determine

the participating providers in your area and then call one of these providers directly to arrange services.

If you have an Indemnity Plan (Traditional Choice), you can obtain services from any licensed physician / therapist.

Participating behavioral health care contractors, providers and facilities are independent contractors and are neither employees nor agents of

Aetna or its affiliates. All behavioral health care and related decisions are the sole responsibility of participating providers.

Aetna does not provide behavioral health care services and, therefore, cannot guarantee any results or outcomes.
