Aetna Helps Members Affected By The Rim Fire In California

Aetna (NYSE:  AET) is making it easier for members affected by the Rim Fire burning in Tuolumne County, California, to refill prescriptions and access employee assistance, student assistance and behavioral health programs. The company is also extending claim and appeal filing times, and helping members who have evacuated find care outside their home areas, among other steps.

“Our thoughts are with the people in California who are affected by the Rim Fire,” said Mark T. Bertolini, Aetna chairman, CEO and president. “We are committed to helping them get the care and medications they need, understanding that many may have evacuated from their homes and are unable to use their usual physicians, pharmacies and hospitals.”

Aetna Behavioral Health has opened its Employee Assistance Program (EAP) resources to all Aetna plan sponsors during this time of need. Aetna’s EAP professionals, who have experience dealing with traumatic events, are available to help. Aetna members can contact Aetna EAP 24/7 for telephonic consultation, referrals or general information such as areas affected by a disaster, available shelters and government resources.

The number to call for EAP is 1-888-AETNA-EAP (1-888-238-6232) and the number to call for the Student Assistance Program is 1-877-351-7889. Individuals and families may also want to reference the following materials.

In addition, Aetna members and health care providers affected by the wildfire who need care or other assistance can reach the company at the following toll-free numbers.
  • Aetna Member Services: Call the number printed on your ID card*. If ID card is unavailable, call 1-800-443-AETNA (1-800-443-2386).
