President Obama has met with insurance industry leaders as he moves forward with plans to overhaul the nation’s health system. Aetna says they have a plan of their own. Hartford based Aetna is one of the nation’s insurance giants – and they have many reasons to keep the current system just the way it is. But they’ve put out a ten point plan that they say will transform health care in the U.S.
Aetna officials say they’re “engaged” in the legislative process underway in Washington. Today, Where We Live, Aetna President Mark Bertolini joins us to talk about the current state of the health care system, the role private insurance has had in getting us here – and where it can take us.
