PPO Network

How to search for a doctor or facility

Use providers in the PPO network whenever possible.

It is best to locate an in-network doctor, urgent care center, and emergency room near you before you get sick. To find a PPO provider, visit the Aetna website (link below).

  1. Click Find a Doctor, Hospital or Pharmacy.
  2. Click Go to Provider Search.
  3. If you have an account, click Log In to Secure Site. If you do not have an account, you may continue as a guest or register using the insurance information on your insurance ID card.
  4. If you choose to search as a guest, enter your location and search radius, then click Search.
  5. Select the “Open Choice PPO” and click Continue.
  6. Select the type of provider you’re searching for.
  7. Select a doctor from the list, and call to make an appointment.

Always check with the doctor or medical facility directly to confirm that they accept the Aetna Open Access Choice PPO Network before you receive treatment.
