California, Delaware, Illinois and New Jersey providers: Aetna® to enter the individual exchange market


We’re expanding! As previously shared, we re-entered the ACA exchanges in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Texas and Virginia on January 1, 2022.


On January 1, 2023, we will enter new states and expand further into the existing states noted above. California, Delaware, Illinois and New Jersey will see the new Aetna CVS Health™ Affordable Care Act (ACA) insurance product (subject to regulatory approval) on the individual exchange market starting January 1. Look for “QHP” (qualified health plan) on member ID cards.


The product


The new insurance product gives members access to a quality network of health care providers and telehealth services, and it provides members with convenient and affordable health care offerings at MinuteClinic® locations, including those within CVS® HealthHUB™ locations, and at CVS Pharmacy® locations.


The plan uses the reach of CVS Health® — its health insurance, pharmacy benefits, retail-based health services, mental well-being programs, telehealth services, digital capabilities and more — to provide greater value for individual consumers.


How members can enroll


Enrollment begins on October 1 for California, and November 1 for all other states. Interested members can go to the Aetna CVS Health page to enroll. And they can visit for more information about the individual exchange and how to qualify for plan credits and discounts.
