The Aetna Whole Health-Virtua policy will be launched in the area of South Jersey later this year and will utilize Virtua’s community-based health system of hospitals, outpatient facilities/services, urgent care centers, and health and wellness centers.
Aetna and Virtua Health, a healthcare contributor in New Jersey, are collaborating on a latest accountable care organization (ACO).
The Aetna Whole Health-Virtua plan will be launched in the place of South Jersey later this year and will utilize Virtua’s community-based health system of hospitals, outpatient facilities/services, urgent care centers, and health and wellness centers, supported and motivated by the clinically integrated network of Virtua Physician Partners, Aetna stated.
An ACO is a coordinated care network that rewards the hospitals and doctors for giving better and more effective care at a lower cost or price.
The Aetna/Virtua ACO will provide consumers and businesses a co-branded commercial health policy that will be affordable while making better the healthcare results, the insurer stated.
“Aetna is working to generate more healthy days for its members,” stated Michael Costa, executive director for Aetna’s New Jersey market. “We are moving toward latest arrangements that reward the hospitals and doctors for offering better, more efficient care, instead than simply more care.”
