If you are shopping for health insurance, you’ve inevitably come across an Aetna plan. Aetna has surprisingly been around for what seemed like forever. Founded in 1853, Aetna first sold life insurance policies, and entered the world of health insurance in 1899.
Today, Aetna is one of the 3 largest health insurance companies in the US (although it is international as well), with about 23 million members and a nearly $65 billion in revenue. This health insurance giant easily sits as a member of the Fortune 500 and is run by the CEO and Chairman, Mark Bertolini.
