The County of San Mateo transitioned on January 1, 2023 to a new medical insurance carrier – Aetna. Aetna replaced ALL Blue Shield plans and provides the same comprehensive coverage, the same overall benefits and co-payment schedule while also expanding coverage areas and giving many an option to save money each month!
Aetna Medical Plans:
- The Aetna Value Network (AVN) HMO plan replaced the Blue Shield Trio HMO and offers an even larger network of doctors and hospitals, including the PAMF/Mills-Peninsula Division. (PLEASE NOTE: Not all PAMF Divisions are part of AVN so check your PCP provider to confirm.)
- Aetna’s Full HMO plan replaced the Blue Shield Access+ HMO and offer comparable coverage with a network that is available in 33 states. (Blue Shield HMO was only available in California so this expansion to 33 States is NEW!!)
- Aetna’s OAMC PPO ($200 Deductible) which is called Open Access Managed Choice POS or OAMC replaced the Blue Shield PPO plan. Aetna has a nationwide network that offers comparable coverage with greater access to in networks providers.
