aetna over barnabas health

Aetna continues negotiations with Robert Wood Johnson (RWJ) Barnabas Health in New Jersey.  However, to meet regulatory requirements and customer commitments, letters will be sent to Providers and Members notifying them of the termination date as follows:

  • Termination date for SI and Medicare is April 22, 2017.  Aetna will mail notices to self-insured and Medicare members and Providers on March 17, 2017
  • Termination date for FI HMO based members and State of NJ members is August 22, 2017 due to 4-month “cooling off” period.  Aetna will mail notices to fully-insured HMO based members and State of NJ plan members on or before May 12, 2017 (within the first 15 business days of actual termination date)

It is possible for Aetna to reach a new agreement with Robert Wood Johnson (RWJ) Barnabas Health after termination notices have been sent to members and providers. If this occurs, Aetna will provide members and providers with additional notice indicating that Robert Wood Johnson (RWJ) Barnabas Health has returned to the Aetna network.
