Supplier Diversity: Supplier Registration

Workplace | Community | Partners/Suppliers


How to register

Registration is simple, quick and free.

We conduct business electronically with ALL suppliers, therefore registration is only accessible online. For access to the registration form, you will need Internet Explorer 5.5 or Netscape 6.0 or higher.

  • Fill out the supplier registration form.
  • All items with an asterisk (*) are mandatory fields. It is important that ALL requested fields are complete to ensure your registration form is processed correctly.
  • Complete the Aetna Referring Contact field with supplier diversity.
  • Verify that all information is accurate before submitting.
  • You will also need a Dun and Bradstreet (D&B DUNS) number. This number is an internationally recognized company identifier in EDI and global electronic commerce transactions. We recommend requesting one as soon as possible. You can obtain a D&B DUNS number online.

Registering with our database does not guarantee our business with your company.

After you have completed registration, we will review your information and keep it on file for future sourcing opportunities. To avoid processing congestion, please wait for us to initiate further contact.

Approval information

After your registration has been processed and confirmed, we will store it in our supplier database. You will receive an email containing a URL (link) to your company’s Sourcing Workbench (webpage), accompanied by a user ID and temporary password. This will allow you to access your company’s profile should you become a supplier to Aetna. If you experience any difficulty with the registration process, please contact the Customer Care Team for help at 1-888-273-2271, or in Connecticut at 860-273-2271. You may also send an e-mail to Frictionlesshelpdesk@aetna.com.

We use the Ariba Supplier Network (ASN) to communicate purchase orders to the suppliers with whom we choose to do business. Suppliers that have a new relationship with Aetna will receive an invitation to register with ASN. Please visit the Ariba Supplier Membership Program to review the membership features, benefits of ASN and any associated fees.
