Aetna Offers Affordable Benefits Package For FBP Association Members

Stocks in this article: AET

Aetna (NYSE: AET) today announced a new product offering designed for the more than 14,000 members of the Flexible Benefits Plans (FBP) Employers Association. Under the affinity program, Aetna’s individual, small group and Aetna Voluntary Hospital plans are now available to Association members. Flexible Benefits Plans, Inc. (FBP) is a third-party benefits administrator and brokerage firm, handling employee benefits for a number of business associations and group clients throughout Pennsylvania.

“Aetna is always working to provide affordable health benefits solutions for employers of all sizes,” said Patrick Young, president of Aetna’s Pennsylvania and Delaware operations. “We’re very happy the FBP Association has chosen our program for its members.”

Beyond the standard offerings in Aetna individual plans, association members will receive several value-added services, including a member assistance program; concierge service; and a 20 percent discount on retail Vital Savings ® cards. Vital Savings ® by Aetna is a group of discount programs that help members save on a variety of dental and health-related products and services.

The Aetna Voluntary Hospital Plan (AVHP) will be offered to all association members, whether they choose an individual or small group plan. The plan can be offered as a fully employee-paid plan or with any portion paid by the employer, when combined with an Aetna plan. The AVHP pays hospital claims on a fully integrated basis, with no additional claim forms required.

Aetna provides health benefits to more than 1 million members in Pennsylvania. Its members have access to a network that includes more than 200 hospitals and more than 31,000 primary care and specialist physicians.
