Aetna, Rainier Health Network and others partner for collaborative care

Health insurer Aetna has announced it will begin helping to provide coordinated care for patients in the state of Washington by partnering with four Seattle-based provider groups: PacificMedicalCenters, The Polyclinic, Providence-Swedish Health Alliance, and Rainier Health Network.

In early 2015, both self-insured and fully insured customers in Washington will have the option of purchasing Aetna Whole Health — a collection of benefit plans designed for a coordinated care model.

Under the agreement between Aetna and the provider networks, Aetna Whole Health plan members will be able to offer their employees access to coordinated care in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties.

"We are excited to work with PacMed, The Polyclinic, Providence-Swedish Health Alliance and Rainer Health Network to offer an innovative healthcare product in the Puget Sound Region," said Norm Seabrooks, Aetna's president for Washington.
