Frequently Asked Questions

1) Will AETNA cover the cost of equipment and installation in Alaska?

Aetna doesn't cover walk-in tubs under their plans that are traditional in Alaska. They usually follow Medicare's standards for durable medical equipment (DME) items used in the bathroom. If the member is bed- confined or room - confined some DMEs are considered necessary, rather than a convenience. DMEs are considered medically necessary if it is vital for day-to-day activities and is primarily medical in nature.
