Aetna Wellcare Transition

Do you have an Aetna Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) that changed to WellCare?

If so, you may have received notice in the mail about WellCare’s recent acquisition of Aetna’s standalone Prescription Drug Plans (PDP).

What you need to know about the change:

  • During 2019, there is no action required on your part. There will be no changes to your 2019 prescription drug plan coverage, and you will be able to access your benefits using your Aetna member ID card. You may also continue to use Aetna’s website (https://www.aetnamedicare.com) to access your 2019 plan information and other member resources.
  • Effective Jan 1, 2020, you will be enrolled in a WellCare PDP unless you choose a different plan during Annual Enrollment Period (AEP).
    • In September, you will receive your Annual Notice of Change; this will explain how your benefits may change in 2020. You will receive a personalized notification of any changes to your drug coverage and pharmacy network.
    • Beginning October 1, you will be able to check the formulary for your 2020 plan to see if your medications are covered.
  • If you choose to keep your existing plan after the Annual Enrollment Period, you will be mailed a new WellCare ID Card before your January 1 effective date.

Client Testimonials

Aetna Wellcare Transition - What You Need To Know | The Wooten Agency

  • "This is a family-owned business who cares about their potential clients. I was looking for help with health insurance and even though it turns out I don't need new health insurance at this time, I feel compelled to write a review because of how thorough Brendan was. He was very knowledgeable and easy-going. He didn't seem pushy at all and listened to everything I had to say. He made sure he was getting all the information correct. I would recommend this agency for any insurance needs." - Doug C.
  • "I sought help from Wooten Agency; Ed, along with Nancy, took the bull by the horns and sorted things out for us very quickly. Shortly thereafter Ginny took over. She is definitely most qualified as a plan selector for Medicare plans and issues related to Medicare. My appreciation to Crystal for the gracious way she always responds to telephone calls and makes every effort to ensure one is not forgotten. And Dana....the one contact we had was enough to find out you are similarly inclined to help a client." - Frank V.
  • "You [Aaron] have been so helpful, and you have all taken a personal interest in my individual and specific questions in order to make the best insurance choices for my needs. Thank you all! I look forward to working together in the future months and years." - Susan H.
