Delaware selects Aetna for public employee health plan
The State of Delaware has awarded Aetna a three-year contract to provide an HMO option to state employees and pensioners. The contract begins July 1.
The Aetna HMO plan is linked to Carelink CareNow, a patient care coordination service powered by Christiana Care Health System.
“We are delighted to be selected once again to provide health benefits to the state of Delaware employees, pensioners and their families,” said Remy Richman, executive director of Aetna’s Southeastern Pennsylvania and Delaware operations. “Our goal is to improve the health and well-being of state employees and their families with two plan options that will provide access to high-quality providers, along with the tools and resources for members to make more informed health care decisions.”
Aetna has served Delaware public employees since 2007. The health care giant provides benefits to 120,000 people in Delaware.
