Aetna is one of the largest and strongest health insurance companies in the United States and defining their health insurance policies is very difficult as they are in every state and have a strong foothold in all aspects of the health care system. With a history of more than 160 years, Aetna is one of the most respected health insurance companies in America.
The Aetna individual health insurance plans include every single type of policy as they offer HMO, PPO, and POS health insurance plans depending on what state you live in and where in that state you live. East Coast Health Insurance is a strong Aetna supporter on the individual side of the health insurance business, as they have never rescinded one of our policies after it was issued. That’s not to say that it hasn’t happened, but it hasn’t happened to us and we have certainly sold a large amount of Aetna policies.
Aetna Individual Health Insurance Plans
East Coast Health Insurance currently offers Aetna in nearly every state on our health insurance quote engine, however this is our only Aetna page as of now besides the states I list below. Why do we have to have a separate health insurance page for Aetna in every state you ask? Because the Aetna plans can vary tremendously just in one state. In Florida, for instance, the Florida health insurance market is provided with POS Open Access plans, while North Florida (most of it anyways) has access to Managed Choice plans.
