In the event of a local or national disaster, resulting in relocation of participating members from the local network area, Aetna would move forward to put a plan in place to respond to the needs of the members who were forced to relocate to other areas of Florida or the Nation. In the past Aetna has made arrangements for members to have continued access to their medications. Aetna will allow claims for the DOS and processed dates in the impacted states regardless of pre-certification or authorization, referrals, medical necessity, and hospital admission dates of service (DOS). Some of the claims may have adjudicated and been denied as out of network, so manual adjustments may need to be requested.
Standard immunizations will be covered for members who are in a high risk group with no history of prior immunization as long as the service is not work-related. Influenzae Type b (Hib), Pneumococcal Conjugate, Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR), and Chicken Pox (Varicella). The systems may deny these claims via auto adjudication if no authorization exists in the system.
