Aetna Network Changes Affect Members in S.J. Valley
Aetna has sent letters to thousands of members in the central San Joaquin Valley -- who receive care at SantÃ© Community Physicians -- to inform them that their physicians beginning Sept. 1 will no longer be under the health plan's network. Aetna is negotiating individual contracts with some of the physicians. Patients under Aetna's HMO and Medicare plans are not affected.
