November 2016
Dear Nursing Facility Provider,
Effective December 31, 2016, Aetna Better Health of Ohio (ABHO) will be ending our relationship with Optum to provide nurse practitioner services to our members in Skilled Nursing Facilities.  Between now and December 31, 2016, ABHO will be transitioning to our new vendor, Advance Health, who will begin providing service to our members starting on January 1, 2017. The Advance Health team will begin to outreach to your facility to gather any credentialing requirements and provide introduction to the program.
Please note that day-to-day interactions (such as authorizations and other engagements) will continue to be handled by Aetna Better Health of Ohio during this transition. 
Should you or any providers have any questions or concerns regarding this transition, please contact our Provider Services team at 1-855-364-0974 and select option 2. 
For members that may have questions they may contact Member Services at  1-855-364-0974 and select option 1. Additionally, members may also contact their Aetna Better Health of Ohio Care Manager with any questions. 
As we continue the transition we will be hosting webinars and other sessions to inform you and your staff about the change. Please check out our website
for updates and other information. Additionally, you can call our provider services team above and add your email address to our distribution list to get all our provider notices delivered directly to your inbox.
Aetna Better Health of Ohio remains committed to the MyCare Ohio program in each of our regions. Thank you for your continued partnership.
