Aetna’s Entry Into New Jersey’s Health Benefits Programs: A Boost for Employee Care

ROI-NJ has learned that Aetna will be available as a choice for New Jersey’s State Health Benefits Program and School Employees’ Health Benefits Program beginning July 1.

During a special open enrollment period in April, over 600,000 members will be able to select Aetna for access to a comprehensive network of physicians and integrated assets with CVS Health.

Aetna will be one of several options available to all active, qualifying employees and their dependents for medical care.

Steve Schaper, senior vice president, of commercial and specialty markets at Aetna, was overjoyed with the news.

“As a New Jersey native and lifelong resident, I’m proud that SHBP and SEHBP members will have access to quality, affordable, and convenient health care through our comprehensive network of primary care physicians, mental health providers, specialists, and hospitals,” the governor stated.

“Our innovative health care solutions will deliver an outstanding health care experience for employees and their dependents.”

Aetna has a long history of meeting the health care requirements of New Jersey state employees and their dependents. Aetna’s Medicare Advantage program covers more than 200,000 retirees, according to company executives. Its dental plan provides complete coverage to over 300,000 state employees, retirees, and dependents.

Aetna’s president for the Northeast Region, Jason Tompkins, stated that the business is happy to be an option.

“We’re here to provide the health care state employees need to keep New Jersey running,” he told the crowd. “We will provide access to care for our hardworking New Jersey teachers, state employees, and their dependents by connecting them to the services and support they need for every type of health care moment, simply and affordably.”

Aetna, a CVS Health company, serves an estimated 36 million people by providing a wide range of traditional, voluntary, and consumer-directed health insurance products and services, such as medical, pharmacy, dental, and behavioral health plans, as well as medical management capabilities, Medicaid health care management services, workers’ compensation administrative services, and health information technology products.
