A new Illinois law effective January 1, 2023, requires insurers and HMOs to direct health care providers via email to information about nonroutine changes to contractual fee schedules as outlined in a newsletter, website listing or other method. Therefore, we need to collect and store a current email address for you or your staff who is authorized to receive this information.
You can provide us a current email address through Availity. All you have to do is:
- Log in to Availity at www.Availity.com
- Go to: My Providers > Provider Data Management (user must have access and be listed as Key Staff by their office Availity Administrator)
- Select Business/Provider to update > select Key Staff name
- Complete the Key Staff information, including Email Address
- Hit Save
Thank you for supplying us with current email address information to assist us in complying with this new law. Should you have any questions on how to provide or update your email address with us or if you would like more information on why we need it, please contact us by calling Aetna Provider Services (All Products) 1-888-MD AETNA (1-888-632-3862) (TTY: 711).
We occasionally change, remove or add information to our website. To allow for accurate translation, updates to the Spanish version usually occur shortly after updates to the English version.
