“Many of our members and employees along the East Coast have had to leave their homes due to Hurricane Sandy and are unable to access their usual pharmacies, doctors and hospitals,” said Aetna Chairman, CEO and President Mark T. Bertolini. “Our thoughts are with those affected by the storm, and we urge people to take safety precautions. Aetna’s medical, pharmacy and behavioral health teams are ready to help our members and their families get the medications and care they need.”

Aetna’s business operations in the path of the storm are shifting work to alternate locations around the country as needed to ensure that the company’s members continue to be served while also protecting the safety of Aetna employees. The company also has staged alternate work sites, including ample teleworking capacity, for employees whose home or office locations have lost power.
