We would like to introduce you to ActiveHealth® Management

As of January 1, 2014, Aetna will be partnering with ActiveHealth Management, an Aetna owned company to support new tools and resources for members. What will be new in 2014?

Your Personalized Health and Wellness Portal
Beginning in January 2014, you and your eligible dependents will have access to the ActiveHealth health and wellness portal. The website is powered by your unique health information. Here are just a few highlights:

  • All of your health information is available in one convenient place — your medical history, conditions, allergies, claims data, medications and doctors.
  • You will receive suggested “health actions” that are based on your health and your goals, so you know they’re realistic and right for you.
  • Tools and trackers are available for things like physical activity and nutrition, to help keep you motivated.
  • If you’re looking for other health information, you’ll find tips for healthy eating, recipes, a useful symptom checker and all the latest health news.
  • For those active employees and their covered spouse/partner, we will automatically track your NJWELL incentive points on our website, where you can view progress and manage your incentives.

You will be able to access the website securely from any computer, or even from your smartphone or mobile device. We strive to make it easier for you.


ActiveHealth Disease Management

Not everyone can be perfectly healthy. But, even with an ongoing health condition, we can provide support to help you achieve your best level of personal health. As an Aetna member, you have access to support for health conditions through the ActiveHealth Disease Management Program.

How it works
As an example, let’s say you have diabetes. You may contact us to join. Or, we might contact you to see if you want help managing your health issues.

Our nurses can then:

  • Teach you about, and send you information on diabetes
  • Provide online resources to learn more and help get you on track
  • Review your treatment plan and the medications your doctor recommends
  • Explain possible side effects of medication or treatment plans, and answer any questions
  • Provide a 24-hour, toll-free phone number for added support
  • Work with you over time to help set and meet goals for managing your diabetes and other health conditions.

After you speak with a nurse, you will receive a follow-up communication, which will list the points discussed and the steps you should take before your next discussion with a nurse. Our support team can help you learn how to protect yourself from future health problems.
