Attn: STRS Ohio Aetna Medicare Plan Enrollees
October 15, 2012
Recently you received a letter from Aetna Medicare notifying you that effective January 1, 2013, Wood County Hospital will not be in its nationwide provider network.
This information is not correct. Wood County Hospital has, and will continue to participate in this plan.
Aetna has confirmed that they made a mistake by including the Hospital, as well as physicians associated with Wood Health Company, and Wood County Women's Care. We apologize for any concern this may have caused.
Aetna Medicare customer service is available to answer questions about other physicians who may have been listed in the letter. Please call the number on your subscriber card if you need more information.
Again, we apologize for any confusion Aetna may have created by their error. You can depend on us to continue to provide you with healthcare services.
