CVS Health Corp.’s Aetna said it will launch two new benefit designs, Upfront Advantage and Flexible Five, for its high-deductible employer group plans. The move was precipitated by conversations with Aetna’s large group clients, who said they wanted to see expanded preventive coverage. Upfront Advantage will exempt some preventive services from deductibles, while Flexible Five will give members five coupons per beneficiary for services including primary and urgent care. Aetna currently enrolls 3,114,651 large group and 254,985 small group members.
