Aetna and Hunterdon HealthCare Partners Forge Accountable Care Partnership

Aetna and Hunterdon HealthCare Partners announced on July 16, 2012 that they had entered into a new accountable care agreement that will improve the quality and cost of patient care, and help members and plan sponsors save money.

Under the new ACO agreement, 2,200 members in the Hunterdon Healthcare employee benefits plan, and approximately 5,700 fully insured Aetna members who live in five New Jersey counties will be served by the ACO. Aetna members served by this new model are ones who primarily received care from Hunterdon Healthcare’s providers in the last 24 months, as well as those who seek care from Hunterdon Healthcare physicians following the start of the agreement.
