Accepted Insurance Plans

For Aetna patients: As of April 14, 2023, UC San Diego Health will no longer be contracted with Aetna's Commercial or Medicare products. (This does NOT affect the Aetna Better Health Medi-Cal plan. Aetna Medi-Cal members do not need to take any action to keep their care with UC San Diego Health after this date.)

While UC San Diego Health will continue to actively negotiate with Aetna for a new contract, please note that if we are unable to reach agreement, this may impact your ability to access care here beginning on April 14, 2023. You may continue to see your UC San Diego Health provider(s) through April 13, 2023. To see if you qualify for Continuity of Care coverage with Aetna in order to keep your specialty care with UC San Diego Health, please call Aetna at the number on the back of your insurance card. If you are an HMO patient with a UC San Diego Health primary care physician and have any questions, please call 619-471-9123 for additional guidance.

To request Continuity of Care/Transition of Coverage, members can contact Aetna directly at the number indicated on their member ID card for more information. The Continuity of Care form that the patients, along with the help of their treating provider, are required to complete can be found here:
