Authored by Bukaty Companies on May 19, 2020

In response to IRS guidance issued in 2019, Aetna will expand coverage for four additional preventive care services covered by a qualified high deductible health plan (QHDHP) before meeting a deductible. The preventive services will also apply to all plans that apply a deductible to the services listed below.

Starting in July, Aetna members can receive the following services (co-pay and coinsurance may apply)

  • retinopathy screenings,
  • peak flow meters,
  • glucometers, and
  • International Normalized Ratio (INR) testing.

This expansion is intended to encourage proper preventive care and disease management.
