Transportation Demand Management, LLC –
2017 Insurance Benefits
Transportation Demand Management, LLC, contributes at least 75% of the premium for medical (base plan).
In-network providers consist of AETNA Contracted Preferred Providers.
When using in-network providers, the health plan generally requires each member to choose a provider who will help manage their care and will arrange referrals to see other specialists when needed. Members are also able to self-refer to a number of in-network providers, and won’t need referrals for these providers.
Members choose a primary care provider in-network by calling the Customer Service Department once they are enrolled, and specifying the provider they would like to see. Customer Service will check on the availability of the provider at the same time.
The pharmacy benefit, for the purposes of creditable coverage, is actuarially equal to or greater than the Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit. Eligible members who are also eligible under Medicare Part D pharmacy benefits can remain covered under the Agreement and not be subject to Medicare-imposed late enrollment penalties should they decide to enroll in a Medicare Part D pharmacy plan at a later date.
Out-of-network, members may seek services from any licensed provider for covered benefits. When out-of-network, members may direct their own care by self-referring to the provider they would like to see – no referrals are needed. They may receive all their services for covered benefits out–of-network. When members seek care they will not be covered at the Level 1 benefits and will be covered at out-of-network benefits level and subject to higher deductible and out of pocket limits and are not protected against balance billing. Balance billing is when a provider’s fees exceed the Contracted rate paid by Aetna or and bills the patient the balance.
