Posted Jan 07 2009 7:02pm
TradingMarkets.com reports that Aetna health insurance has made improvements to NYC Community Plan, its slate of health care offerings for small business owners and their employees. The plan, launched one year ago, is intended to make New York health insurance more accessible for groups that are traditionally underserved. It’s currently available in the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island, the Bronx, and Queens. Hopefully, Aetna will soon introduce similar products in other markets.
Changes to the plan include:
unlimited generic pharmacy benefits in a calendar year
discounts on branded medications
lower co-payments for hospital visits
With cooperation from doctors, hospitals, and other providers, Aetna has actually managed to lower premiums of small business health insurance to as little as $243 per month!
