Aetna Health Insurance Aetna Lies about benefits Internet Nationwide
Having a terrible time with Aetna with getting prescriptions. They just lie every time you talk to them. I finally got one to admit that the doctor had sent in a request and they had denied it after they kept saying the doctor hadn't submitted anything. I had the denial in my hands from them and told her that and she finally after a long silence said "Oh I see he did submit it and we denied it. It isn't covered on your plan".
I told her it was on their formulary and she said yes it is but your "employer specifically chose to exclude that drug"!!!
What employer goes through and picks and chooses specific drugs not to include in their plan?
They also are trying to get away with not paying for a pre-approved investigative procedure by saying it may not be covered under their pre-existing condition policy. Its a procedure to find out if I have something so how could I have already been diagnosed? Also that clause does not apply in group coverage when you've been continuously covered. They want a 3 page questionnaire filled out. Who was your prior policy with? YOU, AETNA What is the phone number? YOURS, etc. etc. Just a delaying tactic.
They customer service reps are rude and appear ill informed about their own product and their own policies.
