Aetna Outlines Efforts To Improve Health Care Transparency And Quality


HARTFORD, Conn.,— Aetna (NYSE: ΑET) joined with employers, union representatives, federal, state and local government leaders, and executives from throughout the health care industry to continue the drive to provide transparent and useful information to consumers about the cost and quality of health care.

At an event hosted by Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt in Washington D.C., Aetna Chairman and CEO Ronald A. Williams outlined several recent milestones Aetna has achieved to help consumers get better information about quality and affordable health care service.

“Aetna was proud to be the first insurer to remove some of the mystery around the cost of health care by providing on-line cost and quality comparisons for members in 2005. We built on that innovation and became the first insurer to sign on to the federal Four Cornerstones of value driven care, because it is our goal to provide the best and most accurate information to our members.”

“We will continue to find innovative and practical ways to meet consumers’ needs for better care at lower costs, and we will continue to provide the best access to health care for our members,” Williams said.
