This Week’s 1 Minute Monday (1MM): Value-Added Items & Services From Aetna Medicare
As you continue 2021 AEP readiness, bring your attention to Aetna’s Medicare member VAIS program for your continued member outreach. Aetna knows that for many of their members, staying at home can be tough. Fortunately, Aetna MA/MAPD members have access to discounts that they can use right now on items such as grocery delivery, games, fitness gear, and 24/7 monitoring.
****Remember, due to compliance rules, the discount programs below, which are considered Value-Added Items & Services (VAIS) by CMS, can only be discussed with current members; you cannot promote them to prospective enrollees.
Members may access VAIS program details through their Secure Member Website.
