Why Have I been assigned out of network (ONA) for open enrollment
Published by Dave Skotarczyk [Dave Skotarczyk] on 2010/11/24 (1106 reads)
ONA simply means that the employee/retiree lives Outside the Network Area. ONA is determined by zip code. Zip codes must meet the network access standards and for us they are: 2 Participating Internists, 2 Participating Pediatricians, 2 Participating OB-GYNs within a 5 mile radius and 1 Participating Hospital in 15 miles. When those standards are not met; the zip code is ONA. ONA status means that the participant can use any provider and the claim is paid at in-network PPO levels even when the provider is not a Network/PPO provider. This is not a bad thing for those of you who get assigned ONA. In fact it is likely a good thing to keep when assigned. Remember that the treatment still must be medically necessary and be a covered item to be paid.

All ONA or enrollment questions should be referred to Hewitt 1-877-722-0020.

Tale of Two Countries Video

Canadian members of CWA talk about their country's health care system and how it compares with the costly system in the United States in a video that the Canadian Media Guild produced for last year's CWA convention in Toronto.

In the video and in other interviews, Canadians indicate they don't understand why Americans cling to a staggeringly expensive system that leaves so many people without health care.

For more information, and to find out how you can make a difference, visit www.healthcarevoices.org/canada. The Health Care Voices website features hundreds of stories, ideas and concerns of CWA members and their families as part of the union's fight for health care reform in the United States.
