Aetna Introduces Vital Savings on Health: Industry-First Offering Combines Discounted Care with Debit Card Feature

Issued by: Aetna

Date: July 13, 2006

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Aetna (NYSE:AET) announced today a new program that provides consumers with discounts of 10 percent to 50 percent off the cost of routine health care expenses such as doctor visits and certain health care services, discounts of 10 percent to 40 percent off the average wholesale price of prescription medications, and a unique pre-paid debit card feature. The new program, called Vital Savings(SM) on Health, will be available to employers of all sizes on September 1, 2006, in Denver, Colo., and Southern N.J., and on October 1, 2006, in Tampa, Fla., and Raleigh, N.C., with additional markets being added in 2007.

"We see this card as a positive for employers, consumers and physicians. Employers, who may not be able to offer certain employees health insurance, now have a low-cost way of attracting and rewarding employees, consumers have access to a broad network of health care providers at discounted rates, and physicians receive payment directly from the debit card at the time of service," said Chris Skelly, head of Aetna Health-Related Financial Solutions.

Vital Savings on Health is part of the Vital Savings by Aetna(R) family of programs, which also includes discounts on dental services, prescription drugs and long-term care.
