Aetna Suspends Individual Health Sales in California July 1

Aetna has announced this morning that it will suspend any further sales of individual & family health insurance in California effective July 1.

This follows on to the announcement on Saturday that Aetna would be (again) abandoning the California Individual Health Market.

Effective July 1, 2013, Aetna will no longer offer Aetna Advantage Plans for Individuals, Families and the Self-Employed in California.

After reviewing our individual health insurance plans in California, we determined we can no longer meet our customers' needs and remain competitive in that market. A number of factors were considered in making this decision. While it was a difficult decision, in keeping with the best interests of our customers, we believe there are other insurers that can better meet their needs
Aetna is no longer accepting applications for California health insurance for both individual underwritten coverage and HIPAA.
