Aetna is now one of the nation’s largest health insurance companies. They have also made significant strides in the Medicare Supplement market in recent years. Aetna Medicare Supplements are offered under the names Aetna Health & Life Insurance Company, Continental Life, and American Continental. And, they are offered in most states nationwide.
All Medigap plans, including Aetna Medicare Supplements, must go by the Medigap coverage chart. Additionally, all Medicare Supplement plans pay claims through the Medicare “crossover” system and can be used at any doctor/hospital that takes Medicare. So, choosing a plan should be based primarily on the premium rate and company rating/reputation.
Aetna Medicare Supplements are often competitively priced in most markets where they are offered. While Aetna is the parent company, their plans are also offered as American Continental, Continental Life and Aetna Health and Life Insurance Company.
In many states, Aetna offers a 5% household discount, which can make their rates even lower for spouses applying together. They are at the forefront of the Medicare Supplement market, as far as technology, offering a customer-access website and easy-to-use electronic application process.
