All About Aetna’s Supplement Plans

Who is Aetna?

Aetna is a managed health care company founded by Eliphalet Adams Bulkeley in 1853 and headquartered in Hartford, CT. The company’s name was inspired by Mt. Etna, a large volcano on the eastern shores of Sicily.

Aetna quickly found success selling life insurance and topped $1 million in annual income by 1861. Today, Aetna is owned by CVS Health, boasts more than $60 billion in annual revenue, and employs nearly 48,000 individuals. 

Like supplement plans from other companies, you can apply for coverage through Aetna if you live in a state where they offer policies, have Medicare Parts A and B (and continue paying your Part B premium), and are 65 or older or have certain disabilities or illnesses, including end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
