aetna-logoThe Atlanta Heart Group is dedicated to seeing that our patients receive the best in cardiac care, which is why we work with major insurance providers such as Aetna to make sure our patients’ costs are covered. Whether you receive our diagnostic and consultative cardiology services at our Decatur or Lithonia locations, or at DeKalb Medical or St. Joseph’s, you can rest assured we are working with Aetna to get you the highest levels of healthcare possible.

Which of our services are covered by your insurance provider? Here are a few of the services we offer, which Aetna may cover:

  • EKG — we monitor the heart’s electrical impulses to look for defects, irregularities, artery blockages or evidence of a heart attack.
  • Echocardiogram — we use sound waves to create images of your heart so your physician can see how it is beating and identify any abnormalities in the heart valves.
  • Cardiac catheterization — we look for artery blockages and heart attack threats by running a catheter through sections of your cardiovascular system.
  • Stress test — we monitor how your heart responds to various levels of physical activity
  • Nuclear stress test — we take a closer look at the heart, measuring blood flow before and after physical exertion.
  • Anticoagulation services — we put you on a regimen of therapy and medicine to monitor and manage your blood’s consistency as it pumps through the circulatory system.

The consultative cardiology services listed above are often critical to ensure we provide proper diagnosis and treatment for our heart patients. This is why the Atlanta Heart Group works with Aetna and other major insurance providers to make certain these services are covered when they are needed. Our website gives specific instructions about each of the procedures we provide, so our patients can properly prepare.

At the Atlanta Heart Group, we are committed to thorough and compassionate treatment for all our patients, and we do not want costs to be a deciding factor in whether a patient can receive the services they need. This is why we work with Aetna to make sure your costs are covered as much as possible, so you can receive the treatment you need with a minimum amount of added financial stress.
