Aetna Appeals Result in Paid Claims
Friday, 26 July 2013
(From the ACA “Week in Review” of 07/25/13)  ACA held a meeting with Aetna representatives back in May to discuss ACA's stance on Aetna's new national policy regarding manual therapy. As a result of that meeting, Aetna agreed to allow providers to appeal and submit supporting documentation for consideration. Soon after, ACA members began reporting that submitted documentation wasn't being reviewed, and that claims were being denied. ACA contacted Aetna executives immediately in an effort to clarify whether DCs would be able to appeal denials of 97140. In response, Aetna alerted its top claims staff to assist in resolving this issue, and so far, reports are coming in that doctors are being treated politely and professionally and claims are being paid.
