In order to offer a medical plan that better suits the needs of more participants than does the current Aetna Open Choice plan -- in terms of the benefits offered as well as its affordability -- the Office of Human Resources is introducing a new medical plan administered by Aetna.
The new plan replaces Aetna Open Choice and will be offered in addition to the current HealthNow plan effective January 1, 2004.
