Supported by CVS, Aetna Aims for ‘Connected’ MA Approach

As the Medicare Advantage program continues to expand at a relentless pace, Aetna in recent years has made growing MA a key strategic priority and identified Medicare Part D as an important enabler of its overall Medicare growth strategy. This month marks the two-year anniversary of Aetna’s acquisition by CVS Health Corp., and the insurer anticipates a strong 2021 Annual Election Period (AEP) driven by $0 premium offerings, increased integration with CVS Health and differentiated MA plan offerings that include plans designed to complement health care coverage for veterans.

AIS Health spoke with Aetna Medicare President Christopher Ciano about the company’s trajectory in MA and how its portfolio has evolved in recent years.
