Cleveland Clinic announced a new multi-faceted collaboration with Aetna, a CVS Health Company (NYSE: CVS), to form an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) model and offer new plans and programs featuring Cleveland Clinic providers. The collaboration includes the launch of a co-branded insurance plan, which could reduce health care costs for participating employers, an expanded relationship nationwide to provide members enrolled in Aetna commercial plans access to second opinions by Cleveland Clinic for certain conditions, and the deployment of Cleveland Clinic’s Cardiac Center of Excellence (COE) program to Aetna plan sponsors.
The Aetna Whole Healthsm – Cleveland Clinic co-branded commercial plan offers Northeast Ohio employers and their plan members positive clinical outcomes, improved experience and reduced total cost of care. Care is delivered in a coordinated approach through Cleveland Clinic’s network of employed, aligned and affiliated providers. Under the new plan, Aetna members can receive care from the Cleveland Clinic Quality Alliance network of employed and independent community physicians or at any Cleveland Clinic facility. Cleveland Clinic will be rewarded for achieving quality and cost targets. Read More: Cleveland Clilnic
