How to Find a Provider

Aetna has a directory for VUMC employees to find providers in the Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network (Tier 1 coverage) and the Aetna National Network, also called the Aetna POS II network (Tier 2 coverage). Here's how it works:

  1. Go to the Aetna DocFind website.
  2. Use the text box to enter your search criteria or use the links on the page for common searches by specialty, conditions, or procedure.
  3. A pop-up box will ask you to select the network you would like to search.
    • Select Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network Providers for ONLY Tier 1 providers for the greatest plan savings. Vanderbilt Medical Group (VMG) providers will be in Tier 1 network plus Affiliated providers.
  4. Review your search results. To filter your search further, use the tools in the left menu under "Narrow your results."
