‘Dental insurance for the rest of us’: Aetna and Vioxx to drop dental coverage
Aetas plan to drop its dental insurance coverage next year.
The company said in a blog post that “Dental care is an important part of a healthy life for most of us, and it is critically important that the quality of care be high, as well as the coverage.”
It said that the decision was made to focus on its other business priorities.
“We will continue to provide comprehensive health coverage to all of our insureds and our other plans, including the Aetamax Plan.
Aetan will continue offering coverage to our employees and their families.
We will continue providing coverage to retirees and their beneficiaries.”
The announcement comes as a major US healthcare provider has been hit by a massive data breach, affecting over 700 million Americans.
The breach affected about 70 million Americans and led to the suspension of the websites of some of the country’s largest insurance companies.
It also caused insurers to suspend coverage for many more customers, including people who use Aetams dental plan.
The US Health and Human Services Department (HHS) said on Friday that Aetana had suspended its plans for 2019 and 2020.
It also said it was investigating the security breach.
The insurer has already stopped offering plans for 2017 and 2018.
It said in the blog post on Friday:”In light of this security breach, we are taking the difficult decision to suspend Aetany’s plan for 2019.
The Aetannas plans are being suspended and the affected enrollees will have the option of switching to the other plans or enrolling in Aetaneas current plans through 2018.
This will result in a complete change to the Aets plan.”
As we have explained before, we have a strong focus on offering quality dental care for our members and our plans are the backbone of our plans.
“We have worked diligently to develop and maintain these plans, and we will continue working with the Aétana Health Care team to implement these changes.”
In a statement, Aetanan said: “The Aetanias plans offer affordable dental care, dental benefits and a broad range of health services that are guaranteed to be provided by our member health plan.”
It added that the company had “zero tolerance” for any breaches of its policies.
“This includes any breaches that affect individuals’ health or safety, or jeopardise the integrity of any plan, program or activity,” it said.
“Aetany will not be providing a dental plan in 2019, 2020 or any future year.
The company will continue its comprehensive coverage for members through 2018.”
