2021 Aetna MA/MAPD highlights  We’re growing

This AEP, our MA/MAPD footprint will span 46 states and D.C., reaching 83.4% of Medicare eligibles across the country.* We’re adding new plan options to 512 counties across 30 states, including major metropolitan areas such as Ventura, CA.

2021 Aetna DSNP highlights  Huge expansion

In 2021, we’re expanding our Dual Special Need Plan (DSNP) footprint. We’re adding 288 more counties, expanding our footprint in existing states (like GA, LA, MO, and NC) and adding 9 new states (CA, CT, KY, ME, MI, MS, NV, NJ, and NY). In total, we’ll have DSNP plans available in 23 states, reaching 4.2 million dual eligibles across the country.* 

2021 SilverScript® PDP highlights  New plan option 

You’ll have three nationwide SilverScript® PDP options to select from in 2021, including the NEW SilverScript SmartRx, with an average premium of $7.38 — it’s anticipated to be one of the lowest monthly premiums in the marketplace.

Plus, in 2021, all SilverScript PDP plans will be branded under the Aetna Medicare Solutions brand family. This will help create a more seamless customer experience for members.
