Aetna to open new office, employ 100 workers in July

In July, Hartford, Conn.-based Aetna plans to open a new office in Baton Rouge, La., that will create 100 positions, according to The Advocate.

The new positions will include member service representatives, clinical care managers and consulting nurses, according to Aetna's website.

Aetna has existing Louisiana offices in New Orleans and Kenner.

Nearly two years ago, Aetna Better Health of Louisiana was one of five companies chosen to insure two-thirds of Louisiana's Medicaid customers. Aetna sees Gov. John Bel Edwards' (D) decision to expand Medicaid in the state as the perfect opportunity to gain headway.

"With the Medicaid expansion in Louisiana, there's a possibility for expanded membership for us," said Aetna company spokesman Walk Cherniak, according to the report. "So that's leading to these brand new positions."
