Aetna's Guiding Principles for Physician Relations formally define the company’s continued commitment to building the best possible relationships with the medical community and to working collaboratively to improve the quality of health care. The Principles identify specific behaviors and business actions that govern Aetna in its interactions with health care professionals.
Creating guiding principles reflects Aetna’s historically proactive approach to working cooperatively with the medical community. As part of our commitment, we will continue our Physician Advisory Board (PAB) and seek input from organized medicine about Board membership and topics. The Physician Advisory Board is a distinguished group of independent practicing physicians who provide advice on issues of importance to doctors and make recommendations as appropriate with regard to Aetna’s business practices and policies. See Current Board Members.
The Board meets twice a year. Submissions received before each meeting will be considered for discussion.
