Generally, if you are pre-authorized for an injectable biologic medicine, currently receive it, and change health insurance companies/plans then there is no problem at all. My work changed healthcare providers and plans every couple of years; no problems/issues/delays in my remicade infusions. I also changed employers 3 times in the last 7 years and have kept on remicade continually at different companies without issue.
I think the hours/days of the home infusions would vary depending on the provider.
If you are serious about
this job, ask the new employer for their plan number and group number from aetna. Give aetna a call with that information and ask them the questions you have directly. Every policy is different, but knowing the employer's plan number enables you to drill down to whatever you need to know in detail with them.
Oh, and one important thing to add: Ask aetna if there is a waiting period or if you can immediately begin using your plan from day of enrollment. Some employers say no health benefits for 30-60 days after beginning employment. And sometimes there is an exemption to that wait period when you hold insurance prior (that is no gap in coverage).
