The seven videos, featuring a Medicare Advantage member, a physician, a broker, a nonprofit organization and three employers, offer viewers a chance to see Aetna’s external constituents explain in their own words how Aetna adds value to them.

In addition, the Annual Report features certain financial highlights, an interactive Board of Directors page, and notable rewards and recognition. The move to an all-electronic format reflects Aetna’s decision to find relevant ways to better engage readers, conserve fiscal resources and respect the environment.
