MaineHealth swaps Anthem for Aetna to administer employee health plan

MaineHealth will switch from Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Maine to Aetna for its employee health plan carrier starting in 2023, according to WMTW.

"Aetna understands the healthcare space, our people and how to better support them," Scott Ballard, chief people officer at MaineHealth, told WMTW. The Portland-based health system has about 22,000 employees.

In April, MaineHealth said its flagship hospital, Maine Medical Center, would exit the Anthem network in January, citing more than $70 million in unpaid claims over the past three years as justification for the split.
