Aetna Senior Supplemental – Medicare Supplement ID Card Update

In an email received on July 18th, 2016 from Aetna Senior Supplemental.

Thanks to feedback from our valued agents and policyholders, we have revised some of the language on our Medicare Supplement ID cards to make it easier for medical care providers to electronically verify eligibility and submit claims. Starting this week, existing policyholders (with a policy effective date before October 1, 2014) will be receiving a new card with a letter explaining the change. Due to the large volume of new ID cards being mailed, members can expect to receive their new ID card between now and September 1, 2016. Their benefits have not changed and they can continue to use their existing ID card until they receive their new ID card.

We appreciate your help in continually improving our members’ experiences.
