Matt Wiggin, Aetna Citizen Action Network :
Our values drive us to share our expertise in health care to help build a better health care system. We recognize that great nations don’t have 46 million uninsured.
For that reason, we have taken on a leadership role in developing specific public policy proposals, and in urging meaningful reforms in the halls of Congress and state legislatures across the country.
In 2009, we were strong supporters of the right kind of health care reform. We were on Capitol Hill often, offering public testimony in the House and Senate; and offering our insights into making health reform workable for the long haul.
We also cosponsored a special edition of the journal Health Affairs, and brought together economists, researchers and policy experts in Washington to offer real-world solutions to rising health care costs.
We as a nation must find a way to provide better health care quality and value, while getting everyone covered. You can be sure that Aetna will continue to play a leadership role in developing solutions that meet the needs of all Americans.
