Good news! There will be no change to the Aetna medical plans for the July 2022 plan year. You will continue to have the option to enroll in either the Aetna Choice POS II or Aetna Choice POS II Carilion plans.
As a reminder, the difference between these two medical plans is in the member cost share for certain doctor's office visits. The Aetna Choice POS II plan has a $25 copay for an office visit to an in-network Primary Care Physician (PCP). With the Aetna Choice POS II Carilion plan, members who utilize a Carilion PCP will pay a $5 copay for an office visit. Under that same plan, if you choose to use an in-network PCP who is not part of Carilion, your copay will be $30 for a PCP office visit.
You have the option of electing voluntary vision benefits through the UniView vision plan. For the July 2022 plan year, there will be no change to the premiums or covered benefits under this program.
The United Concordia dental plans will continue to be offered for the July 2022 plan year. You have the option to enroll in either the Core Dental Plan or the Buy-Up Dental Plan.
