At Aetna we love to see our members smile. Because we know that a healthy happy smile is a window into overall health.
That’s why when we saw the staggering costs of some of the most common health conditions we knew it was time to take a deeper look.
We teamed up with Columbia University to research the relationship between oral health and high cost health conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and some pregnancies.
And we found a big connection so we did something about it and launched our first Aetna Dental Medical Integration Program in 2007.
Through it we link our member’s dental and medical data to find out if they have conditions that can benefit from regular or additional dental care.
We automatically reach out to those who haven’t seen a dentist recently and encourage them to schedule a visit. Not every carrier has this kind of integration and that’s because Aetna has been at the forefront of this approach to care.
We also provide enhanced benefits at no extra cost to the member. And the results speak for themselves. Members who are in our Aetna Dental Medical Integration Program experience significantly better health outcomes than those who weren’t.
With this program we’re helping to drive healthier outcomes and helping to lower health care costs. Which is something to smile about.
