How to Enroll

Hi everyone, I am Bud Jones.

Today, I am going to give you a quick overview on how to enroll in the Aetna Direct and Aetna Medicare Advantage Plan.

The first step is to enroll with the Office of Personnel Management. To enroll through OPM, visit or call the OPM Retirement Office Center at 1 (888) 767-6738. You will need to provide them with the correct enrollment code.

For those who want to enroll in Aetna Direct, use the following codes: N61 for Self, N63 for Self Plus One, and N62 for Self and Family For those who want Aetna Medicare Advantage you must first enroll in Aetna Advantage through the OPM Retirement website using the following codes:

Z24 for Self, Z26 for Self Plus One, and Z25 for Self and Family

You are not done yet. The second step to opting in to Aetna Medicare Advantage is to contact Aetna and provide your Medicare Information. Use or call Aetna Retiree Solutions at 1 (866) 241-0262. Please have your Medicare card available as you will need to give your Original Medicare Effective Dates for Part A and B and Medicare Beneficiary ID to complete your enrollment.
