Aetna entered into a three-year agreement with Grove City Medical Center for expanding network access for its members in Western Pennsylvania’s Mercer County.
Under this new agreement, which takes effect Feb. 15, Aetna members will be able to receive covered services, at in-network rates, from Grove City Medical Center.
"Aetna is very excited to announce this new agreement with Grove City Medical Center. Grove City Medical Center plays an important role in delivering inpatient and outpatient services to residents of the community, and we’re delighted to offer in-network access to their facilities for our members.” said Antonia Gaetano, Aetna’s vice president of network management for Western Pennsylvania.
"We are pleased to become part of Aetna's network. This new relationship will allow us to provide health and medical services to those in our community who are insured by Aetna, who previously had to travel away from home to seek care elsewhere," said David Poland, chief financial officer for Grove City Medical Center.
Aetna provides health benefits to more than 1 million people in Pennsylvania. In Western Pennsylvania, members have access to a network that includes 75 contracted hospitals and more than 8,500 primary care physicians and specialists.
Grove City Medical Center provides community-based health and medical services to patients through its full service hospital, a rural health clinic and five outpatient centers located across three western Pennsylvania counties.
