Baylor Health joins Aetna Medicare Advantage network
Baylor Health Care System has joined Aetna's network of participating hospitals for Medicare Advantage members, effective Nov. 1. The agreement includes Baylor Quality Alliance physicians and HealthTexas Provider Network physicians. Aetna said Baylor has been part of its commercial network for more than 20 years. Medicare Advantage is the HMO-model option offered as an alternative to traditional Medicare. Medicare Advantage typically offers beneficiaries lower out-of-pocket costs but also entails a more limited network of providers.
