Aetna, AtYourBusiness.com Aim at Small Firms

Aetna U.S. Healthcare Inc.'s benefits programs will be available to businesses that register with AtYourBusiness.com, a Web firm that helps employers manage their workforce.


Aetna, Hartford, CT, will initially be offered at the site in Florida, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The membership-based program eventually will be rolled out nationwide as Aetna meets state-by-state insurance regulations.


Employers will be able to get healthcare quotes at AtYourBusiness.com, as well as request a follow-up phone call from an Aetna sales representative.


AtYourBusiness, Rockville, MD, plans to promote the channel -- its first one for healthcare -- to achieve a formidable membership for this area of its multichannel site. A large membership will lower the prices offered, as the members will be able to leverage their purchasing power as a group.


The Aetna channel will especially help small businesses "of eight or 10 people who couldn't normally achieve this leverage," said Robin Payes, director of marketing at AtYourBusiness.
