New Aetna Concierge Service

We have good news to share with you about an enhanced level of customer service for Gettysburg College health insurance participants called Aetna Concierge which will be effective September 1, 2016.  We are adding this enhanced service with the hope that it will improve communications, eliminate unnecessary steps and provide employees and their physicians with accurate plan information which is unique to Gettysburg College’s health insurance program. 

Throughout the past nearly nine months, we have heard from many of you and your physicians that the regular customer service center is not educated on the nuances of our plan and we hope that this new service will improve customer service.  Please NOTE that the Concierge service is available 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., EST Monday-Friday, if you call outside these hours you will be directed to the regular customer service center.

Think of the Concierge service as your personal assistant for health care who has been trained on our specific Whole Health and Open Choice PPO plans.  The Concierge understands our networks and will be able to assist locating physicians, planning for upcoming treatments and answering questions about your claims.

All Gettysburg College health insurance participants will soon receive new Aetna ID cards with a special phone number (855-586-6961) to use to access Aetna Concierge.  This number will be effective September 1, 2016.   As mentioned in the Aetna email you received on August 17, 2016, please watch for the new cards in your home mail.

Religious Inclusion Policy

Gettysburg College is committed to a diverse, equitable and inclusive community which includes affirming our support for individuals from all faiths and religious traditions. Members of our community have the right to observe religious holidays and engage in faith practices while minimizing conflict with academic, athletic, and work commitments. In December 2015, the Student Life Committee approved a new policy, the Religious Inclusion Policy.  Please carefully review the information in the Religious Inclusion Policy and the Religious Observance Accommodation Form . In addition, members of our community are encouraged to review the College’s list of religious holidays and work to avoid scheduling campus-wide events which directly conflict with these holidays. Please contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion or College Life if you have questions regarding the Religious Inclusion Policy.
