Founded in 1853 in Hartford, Connecticut, Aetna is one of the nation’s leading providers of health care, dental, pharmacy, group life, and disability insurance, and employee benefits. The company provides insurance coverage to an estimated 44 million people in all 50 states through its networks of over one million healthcare professionals and more than 5,000 hospitals. Aetna offers a range of products and services targeted specifically to small, mid-sized and large multi-site national employers, and also serves individuals and Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries in certain markets.
Beyond traditional insurance coverage, Aetna offers a wide array of programs and services that help control rising employee benefits costs while striving to improve the quality of health care, such as case management; disease management and patient safety programs; integrated medical, dental, pharmaceutical, behavioral health and disability information. The company also provides members with access to convenient tools and easy-to-understand information that can help them make better-informed decisions about their health and financial wellbeing.
“Aetna is proud to join fellow New England businesses in thoughtful dialogue with policy-makers on key issues that impact the business community throughout the region. Health care costs are a significant expense for businesses, and we appreciate the chance to share our views on necessary changes to our health care system that will benefit consumers, care providers and businesses alike,” said Martha Temple, president, Aetna New England Region.
In addition to being a top-notch insurance provider, Aetna also prides itself on being a valued corporate citizen and has a long history of providing support in the communities where the company does business. In fact, in 2012, Aetna was recognized as one of America’s most community-minded companies, ranking fourth in “The Civic 50” survey published by Bloomberg.
