Aetna, Cleveland Clinic to Offer Co-Branded Employer Plans

CVS Health Corp.’s Aetna division — having recently rolled out two new plan designs that aim to ease customers’ cost-sharing burden — is now presenting employers with “a cost-effective offering beyond Aetna’s typical broad network plans” that requires members to receive care from a select group of Cleveland Clinic-affiliated providers.

The co-branded Aetna Whole Health – Cleveland Clinic plans will be available to fully insured and self-insured employers in 10 northeast Ohio counties this fall, according to an Aug. 19 press release. Employers could save as much as 10% in health care spending by choosing the new plan over a current Aetna broad network plan, but the catch is that members must receive care from the “Cleveland Clinic Quality Alliance network of employed and independent physicians” or at any Cleveland Clinic facility. Cleveland Clinic, meanwhile, will be rewarded for achieving quality and cost targets.
