Aetna insurance plans back in-network for services at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital
Belleville, IL – St. Elizabeth’s Hospital and Hospital Sisters Health System proudly announce that an agreement has been reached with Aetna to resume acceptance of their insurance plans, effective October 1, 2013.
All currently contracted HSHS providers will also remain in-network. The new contract is a System-wide contract running through December 31, 2014. During the next year, HSHS Managed Care Services will be working on a long-term System-wide contract to provide sustainable and reliable services.
The previous contract with the insurance provider had been terminated in July 2013 but negotiations continued as the System is committed to providing high quality health care to those in our community.
“HSHS providers are constantly working to enhance the quality of care we provide while also working to reduce costs and deliver care more efficiently,” said Leslie Lovshin, Director of Finance/Controller at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. “We are pleased that an agreement was reached with Aetna and we are excited to welcome patients with this provider back to St. Elizabeth’s for their future care.”
