As an Aetna member, you'll have access to our Informed Health Line, toll-free, day or night. You can't always call your doctor to talk about a health problem or question. But you can call Informed Health Line® (1-800-556-1555), a toll-free service staffed by trained registered nurses. While the nurses aren't authorized to diagnose illnesses or prescribe drugs, they can:
Answer health-related questions
Help you decide whether or not to go to the emergency room
Tell you simple steps you can take to address a health issue until you can get to a doctor
When facing the advanced stages of an illness, it’s comforting to know you can turn to people who care. The Aetna Compassionate Care Program is here to help you and your family through this challenging time with compassion, care and support.

Nurses who are specially trained to coordinate care, help you manage your benefits, identify helpful resources and more
