This section explains key terms you’ll see in our Provider and Pharmacy Directory.

  • Providers are health care professionals and support providers such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, and other people who provide care and services. Services include medical care, long-term supports and services, supplies, prescription drugs, equipment and other services.
    • The term providers also includes facilities such as hospitals, clinics, and other places that provide medical services, medical equipment, and long-term supports and services.
    • Providers that are a part of our plan's network are called network providers.
  • Network providers are the providers that have contracted with us to provide services to members in our plan. The providers in our network generally bill us directly for care they give you. When you see a network provider, you usually pay nothing for covered services.
  • A Primary Care Provider (PCP) is a clinician of primary care such as a general practitioner, an internist, a family practitioner, an OB/GYN, a geriatrician or a nurse practitioner who gives you routine health care. Your PCP will keep your medical records and get to know your health needs over time.
  • Specialists are doctors who provide health care services for a specific disease or part of the body. There are many kinds of specialists. Here are a few examples:
    • Oncologists care for patients with cancer.
    • Cardiologists care for patients with heart conditions.
    • Orthopedists care for patients with certain bone, joint, or muscle conditions.
  • Your provider may need prior authorization or an approval from Aetna Better Health Premier Plan before you get certain services. Covered services that need prior authorization are marked in the Benefits Chart in Chapter 4. Some drugs are covered only if you get prior authorization from us. Covered drugs that need prior authorization are marked in the List of Covered Drugs.
  • You also have access to a Care Coordinator and a Care Team that you choose.
    • A Care Coordinator helps you manage your medical providers and services.
    • Your Care Team includes you or your chosen legal representative, your care coordinator, your primary care provider, your LTSS Coordinator or PHIP Supports Coordinator (as applicable), and others as needed. Everyone on the Care Team works together to make sure your care is coordinated. This means that they make sure tests and labs are done once and the results are shared with the appropriate providers. It also means that your PCP should know all medicines you take so that he or she can reduce any negative effects. Your PCP will always get your permission before sharing your medical information with other providers.

You can get services from any provider who is in our network and accepting new members.

First, you will need to choose a Primary Care Provider. You may be able to have a specialist act as your PCP. If you would like a specialist to be your PCP, please talk to your Care Coordinator or call Member Services. The specialist must agree to be your PCP. Specialists who perform primary care functions including specialists who provide primary care in FQHCs, rural health clinics, health departments and other similar community clinics may act as PCPs.

To choose a PCP, go to the list of providers on page 1 and choose a provider:

  • whose offices are easy for you to get to.
  • who has been recommended by someone you trust, or
  • that you use now, or
    • If you want help in choosing a PCP, please call Member Services at 1-855-676-5772 (TTY: 711), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The call is free. Or, visit www.aetnabetterhealth.com/michigan.
    • If you have questions about whether we will pay for any medical service or care that you want or need, call Member Services and ask before you get the service or care.

As an Aetna Better Health Premier Plan member, you may be able to get long-term supports and services (LTSS), such as home health, personal care, nursing home and home and community based services (adult day program, respite, expanded community living supports, preventive nursing services, private duty nursing, and other services). Long-term supports and services supports are help for people who need assistance to do everyday tasks like taking a bath, getting dressed, making food, and taking medicine. Most of these services are provided at your home or in your community but could be provided in a nursing home or hospital.

You should discuss long term supports and services with your Care Coordinator to determine which services you qualify for and how to access them.

You must get all of your covered services from providers within our network. If you go to providers who are not in Aetna Better Health Premier Plan’s network (without prior authorization or approval from us), you will have to pay the bill.

The exceptions to this rule are when you need urgent or emergency care or dialysis and cannot get to a provider in the plan, such as when you are away from home. You can also go outside the plan for other non-emergency services if Aetna Better Health Premier Plan gives you permission first.

  • You may change providers within the network at any time. If you have been going to one network provider, you do not have to keep going to that same provider. If you would like to change your PCP, talk to your Care Coordinator or call Member Services at 1-855-676-5772 (TTY: 711), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  • Home infusion pharmacies
  • Long-term care (LTC) pharmacies
  • Indian Health Service / Tribal / Urban Indian Health Program (I/T/U) Pharmacies

You are not required to continue going to the same pharmacy to fill your prescriptions.

  • 90-Day Retail Pharmacy Programs. Some retail pharmacies may also offer up to a 90-day supply of covered prescription drugs. A 90-day supply has the same copay as a one-month supply.

You can get your drugs covered at any of our network pharmacies. This includes our network pharmacies outside of our service area.

This directory is arranged by pharmacy type, county, city and pharmacy name. Look for the county and city where you live and find a pharmacy near you.

Retail and mail order pharmacies are accessible to all members. Home Infusion, Long-Term Care and Indian Health Service / Tribal / Urban Indian Health Program (I/T/U) Pharmacies are accessible to members as long as they are eligible for their services.

The legend in the front cover of the directory provides information on symbols used in the pharmacy listing.

You can get prescription drugs shipped to your home through our network mail order delivery program which is called CVS Mail Order Pharmacy.

You also have the choice to sign up for automated mail order delivery through our CVS Mail Order Pharmacy. The pharmacy must obtain consent before shipping or delivering any prescriptions you do not personally initiate.

  1. New prescriptions the pharmacy gets from you

The pharmacy will automatically fill and deliver new prescriptions it gets from you.

  1. New prescriptions the pharmacy gets directly from your provider’s office

The pharmacy will automatically fill and deliver new prescriptions it gets from health care providers, without checking with you first, if either:

  • You used mail order services with this plan in the past, or
  • You sign up for automatic delivery of all new prescriptions you get directly from health care providers. You may ask for automatic delivery of all new prescriptions now or at any time by contacting CVS Caremark Customer Care at 1-800-552-8159 (TTY: 1-800-231-4403).
  • If you used mail order in the past and do not want the pharmacy to automatically fill and ship each new prescription, please contact us CVS Caremark Customer Care at 1-800-552-8159 (TTY: 1-800-231-4403) and let them know how you would like to receive your mail order prescriptions or register online with CVS Caremark at http://www.caremark.com/. You can change your mail order preference at any time.  

If you have never used our mail order delivery and/or decide to stop automatic fills of new prescriptions, the pharmacy will contact you each time it gets a new prescription from a health care provider to see if you want the medication filled and shipped immediately. This will give you an opportunity to make sure that the pharmacy is delivering the correct drug (including strength, amount, and form) and, if necessary, allow you to cancel or delay the order before it is shipped. It is important that you respond each time you are contacted by the pharmacy, to let them know what to do with the new prescription and to prevent any delays in shipping.

To opt out of automatic deliveries of new prescriptions you got directly from your health care provider’s office, please contact CVS Caremark Customer Care at 1-800-552-8159 (TTY: 1-800-231-4403).

       3. Refills on mail-order prescriptions

For refills, please contact your pharmacy 15 days before you think the drugs you have on hand will run out to make sure your next order is shipped to you in time.

So the pharmacy can reach you to confirm your order before shipping, please make sure to let the pharmacy know the best ways to contact you. Contact CVS Caremark Customer Care at 1-800-552-8159 (TTY: 1-800-231-4403) to tell them the best way to reach you. If we don’t know the best way to reach you, you might miss the chance to tell us whether you want a refill and you could run out of your prescription drugs.

Typically, you should expect to get your prescription drugs within 10 days from the time that the mail order pharmacy gets the order. If you do not get your prescription drug(s) within this time or if you would like to cancel an automatic order, please contact us at CVS Caremark Customer Care at 1-800-552-8159 (TTY: 1-800-231-4403). To learn more about mail order pharmacies, see Chapter 5 of the Member Handbook.

Long‑Term Care (LTC) pharmacies are included in the network. These pharmacies offer pharmacy services to patients that are housed in a type of group home like a nursing home or rehabilitation center. Generally, all LTC pharmacies are in network.
