Case Western Reserve University Postdoctoral Benefits Program

Medical Plans

There are two medical plans offered by Aetna, a well-known regional insurance carrier. They are the Select Plus HMO and the Access PPO.

The Select Plus HMO is available to all postdocs who live in the Cleveland/Akron area. Important: If you live outside of the Cleveland area but still in Ohio, you may not be able to select the HMO because you may be out of the service area. If you live out-of-state, a state other than Ohio, please select the PPO as your plan option. Please refer to the partial list of cities below that qualify as in-network for the HMO. If you live in Ohio and your city isn’t listed, but you live in a city within 50 miles of Cleveland, your city is most likely in the service area. If you have questions about your city, please contact our office for assistance.

List of Ohio cities accepted by the HMO service area:

Akron (44302) Hudson (44236) Parma (44129) South Euclid (44121)
Beachwood (44139) Kent (44240) Richmond Heights (44143) Stow (44224)
Brunswick (44212) Lakewood (44107) Sagamore Hills (44067) Talmadge (44278)
Chagrin Falls (44022) Lyndhurst (44124) Shaker Heights (44120) University Heights (44118)
Cleveland Heights (44106) Mayfield Heights (44124) Solon (44139)  

In order to assist you with making your plan choice, please read the section found on Aetna Plans, Comparing the HMO to the PPO Plan, which will provide you information on the differences between the these two categories of medical plans.

To learn more about both plans, and to access detailed benefit summaries, please click on Aetna Plans.
