Aetna Signs Contract with Patient Choice Healthcare, Inc


ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. — Aetna (NYSE: AET), the nation’s third largest insurance company, announced that it will begin offering Patient Choice Insights, a tiered health care provider network in Minnesota.

Patient Choice is recognized as a leader for its tiered network model launched nearly a decade ago. With the Patient Choice Insights network, health care providers are ranked on cost and quality measures and members are encouraged to use providers who rank best in delivering value

Aetna will offer the Patient Choice Insights network to self-funded employers and their employees in central and southern Minnesota. “This network option allows us to offer new customers a highly competitive network solution, and consequently, greater quality and value to both our employers and their employees,” said Ross Sanders, president of national accounts for Aetna’s north central and southwest regions.

“We can now offer a national solution to both Minnesota-based employers, and national employers with employees in Minnesota, that combines highly regarded transparency and quality tools for members with some of the strongest medical management capabilities in the industry,” he added.

“Now more than ever, employers are looking for ways to reduce costs and having a quality network of participating providers greatly helps achieve that goal. We’re conducting a seminar on February 23 in Minneapolis for brokers, consultants and employers focusing on additional ways we can help them reduce costs,” said Sanders.*
