The Aetna Medicare Value℠ Plan (PPO) will provide access to the Community Care Physician Network, LLC (CCPN).

The CCPN physicians and other health care providers that are covered at in-network rates include:

CCPN patients, especially those with chronic or complex health needs, who enroll in this Medicare Advantage plan will experience more coordinated care. They’ll benefit from improved information flow to the CCPN physicians providing care. Aetna nurse case managers will assist CCPN care providers with care coordination, outreach and follow-up services.

Plan highlights include a $0 copay for primary care physician office visits, preferred generic drugs at preferred pharmacies and routine vision and eye exams, along with $0 medical annual deductible. Members also have access to a SilverSneakers® gym membership at no extra cost.
