Aetna To Sell Medicare Supplement Plans In Florida

Stocks in this article: AET

Aetna (NYSE: AET) announced today that its subsidiary, Aetna Life Insurance Company (Aetna), has been approved by Florida regulators to begin selling individual Medicare Supplement plans in the state.

Beginning March 1, 2013, beneficiaries with original Medicare will be able purchase the plans directly from Aetna, either by phone or during a personal sales consultation with an Aetna sales representative. Eventually, the company plans to also offer the plans through brokers.

Aetna Medicare Supplement plans help beneficiaries pay for some of the health care costs not covered by Medicare Part A or Part B. These include deductibles and coinsurance payments.

“Aetna is very happy to add Medicare Supplement plans to our menu of offerings for beneficiaries in Florida,” said Johnny Matos, head of Aetna’s Medicare Advantage sales for Florida. “With our Medicare Advantage plans and Part D prescription drug plans, beneficiaries now can choose from an even broader range of Aetna solutions.”

Adding individual Medicare Supplement plans is one of several changes Aetna is making to better meet the needs of Florida’s Medicare recipients.

Aetna also is making it easier for beneficiaries to access information and get their Medicare questions answered. At each Aetna Medicare enrollment meeting in Florida, representatives will remain on hand for the entire day – long after the meeting has ended – and answer questions about available options. For more information, go to www.aetnamedicare.com.

Aetna provides health benefits to more than 1 million people in Florida through a wide array of commercial and Medicare plans.
