Philip & Catherine Hodge, UAW Trust Aetna Medicare Advantage members
Philip: My name is Philip Hodge. I worked for General Motors for forty six years. I’m thankful for the job that I had, that I was able to provide for my family, take care of them, send them to school and do all the other nice things that people want to do for their family.
Catherine: Well we got the letter that everybody was going to Aetna unless they decided to opt out and just stay with their own insurance.
Philip: And then we had an Aetna meeting. The Aetna representatives—they went pretty much from A to Z and we made the final decision that was it.
Catherine: So we checked to see if all of our doctors were there and all were there and so we just went right to Aetna.
Catherine: Being 60 and 70 now is not like being 60 and 70 back during my mother’s time. Being healthy, like you know I can go in my garden and work. I can take care of myself and I can help with my grandchildren. I can take care of my husband. We go on cruises.
Philip: We do have relatives in Florida but we also like Florida. We had considered moving but she didn’t want to leave the children. The grandchildren.
Catherine: I’m not gonna leave.
Philip: But the idea of coverage is great. Because one time when we were there we were in the bed sleeping in the middle of the night and something bit me and I had to go to the hospital.
When you’re sick away from home, something happens. You know, you don’t have your family doctor or your local hospital and you’re in a strange place and so that’s comforting to know that at least you have insurance to go to someplace, you know, where you can get help.
Catherine: I had surgery in February and then I got a bill from my doctor and I called Aetna. So the representative she look, she says, “you paid too much money,“ and I says “let me call the doctor’s office,” and she says “No. Let me take care of this for you, I’ll call you back.” It was about an hour, an hour and a half she called me back and she said the hospital had taken too much money and they were going to put it right back on my debit card and so everything was fine and I really appreciate Aetna for being so thorough specially’ to elderly people. You know maybe I don’t look elderly, but I am 68. And I’m so glad they had representatives there to take care of that for us.
I don’t know what I would’ve done without a union. We really lived a good life. So I want to tell anybody that wants to go Aetna. Were here and were glad that were here.

After working at General Motors for 46 years, Philip Hodge left his health plan. When given the choice, he and his wife Catherine switched to Aetna. They never looked back. “I really appreciate Aetna for being so thorough – especially to elderly people.”
