Aetna’s international health care benefits honoured

LONDON – Aetna (NYSE: AET), a leading global diversified health care solutions company, has been named “Best International Private Health Insurance Provider” for 2013 by Professional Adviser, a leading publication for financial advisers and insurance brokers in the United Kingdom.

In recognising Aetna, the magazine pointed to the company’s size and strength in expanding affordable and quality health care cover internationally. Aetna’s global health care benefits support more than 500,000 members living in almost every country in the world.

Aetna also was cited for its use of technology to help its members easily access health care information.

“We are honoured to be recognised by experts in the financial services industry for the quality of our portfolio of products and our commitment to empowering our members to live healthier lives wherever in the world they may be,” said David Healy, Aetna International’s general manager, Europe. “Our goal is to give people easy access to affordable, high-quality medical care and provide them with the tools to maintain good health.”

An independent panel of financial and insurance industry experts based their award decision on a wide range of criteria, including transparency, ease of use, and appropriateness and flexibility of products and services.

Deborah Benn, a financial journalist and chair of the judging panel, said, “In a complex, global regulatory environment, Aetna delivers smart health care solutions that meet the needs of its customers and the ever-evolving compliance requirements of countries around the world. We were impressed with Aetna’s focus on technology as a way of helping people address their health issues and lower costs for its customers. Of particular note is its mobile app that lets its members locate direct settlement health care providers all over the world.”

Now in its 14th year, the Professional Adviser International Fund & Product Awards honours firms that offer financial and insurance products and services internationally.
