Greater control and lower costs


Consumer-directed health plans are among the lower-cost options that are compliant with the Affordable Care Act. These plans can help your employees become more informed consumers of health care.


With these plans, your employees have higher deductibles. However, they can use a pre-funded spending account, such as a health savings account, to pay for medical claims. You pay lower premiums on these plans.


Offer benefits without added costs


You can offer employees extra benefits with Aetna Voluntary plans. And these plans don't add to your costs.  


Aetna offers a range of voluntary insurance plans: 


  • Hospital insurance plans  
  • Critical illness coverage  
  • Accident coverage  
  • Dental plans  
  • Vision plans 
  • Pay-as-you-go dental with guaranteed savings  

Employees enjoy the lower rates we have negotiated, but you don’t pay extra.
