Aetna has recently updated their AOR reassignment policy in the Aetna Medicare Producer Guide. It now outlines procedures that members, agencies, agents and third parties must follow to initiate AOR changes. Here are some key points you’ll want to know. All AOR reassignment requests will be effective the first of the month following the date we receive all correctly completed documents. During a valid election period, if we receive multiple applications for one beneficiary for the same plan, the agent listed on the first application we receive and process will become the AOR. Agents are no longer permitted to submit an application during AEP with the intention of changing the AOR. The AOR may only be changed by application submission if the member enrolls into an entirely new plan.
