Traditional PPO

The Traditional PPO medical plan has full coverage for in-network preventive care with you sharing the cost of other services through co-pays, coinsurance and your deductible. You are eligible to enroll in the General Purpose Flexible Spending Account (GPFSA) for your out-of-pocket expenses, when enrolled in the Traditional PPO plan.

The Traditional PPO plan gives you the option to visit any provider, allowing you to shop around when you need health care. You can visit any doctor or facility, but you will receive the best value when you go in-network. To find in-network providers, visit Aetna’s Doc Find. (Use the Aetna Choice POS II network.)
