Aetna to Add IFP Maternity and Autism Benefits in California

Aetna announced to agents yesterday that they will be adding both the mandatory maternity benefit and the new autism benefit to their existing IFP (Individual & Family Plans) portfolio.

Last year Aetna closed IFP operations in Colorado due, in part, to mandatory maternity benefits. Many agents in California were waiting to see what action Aetna would take here.

In California, effective July 1, 2012, all individual & family health insurance plans must cover maternity benefits under SB 222 which was signed into law last fall.
