Home Care Nurses

Home Care nurses were laid off as of June 2014, no more pre-cert. So tired of hearing OBAMACARE as the excuse. It is hard to have trust in this country, everyone plays the blame game an nothing is ever done to turn things around. Could it very well be Obamacare-I guess, BUT it could also be the fat cats using that as the excuse to make cuts because they have a "we'll show them attitude." Obama needs to be more aware that Obamacare is the reason astronomical amounts of people are losing their jobs throughout the country. The government is playing games among each other and "We The People" are being hurt in the end! Foreigners are laughing at Americans-it is embarrassing. Our Founding Fathers are most likely in utter disbelief regarding what this country is all about. We need all forms of government to be wiped out and start a new. It should be illegal for companies to have layoffs and have current job postings on their website. Wake up we are being taken advantage of by people who say they want to lead our country, but yet no form of government is truly in it for the people. Their promises are empty, our tax dollars, social security and hard earned money are being mismanaged, the economy/loss of jobs, banking industry, student loans/education, Medicare have all been abused/mismanaged for years by both parties. Gun control, suicide rates and behavioral health issues are at an all time high. This all goes hand in hand, but nobody wants to deal with any of it. They just want the position, title, etc., but there is no longer the good old fashioned work ethic. It is all a game of fluff and we are pawn pieces being moved about the game board of life.

Moon Township, PA

Anyone know if Aetna outsources there Med Part D refunds? I hear they do other platforms. Wondering if us handling this at the Moon Twp office (formerly Coventry) will get the pink slip.

Why we have no posts here?

It looks like that this round of layoffs will be done in secrecy again. Aetna does not tell us much, why do not we share a bit more info here. I'd be curious to hear other opinions as it relates to where we are going and how we will be affected beyond 2014 as it relates to downsizing. I think that we'll have a ton of layoffs in 2014 and that everyone should be ready as you never know where they are planning to hit next.

Aetna Layoffs 2014 and beyond

We are heading into a storm. Aetna Layoffs in 2014 are a reality and we had multiple units and corporate affected as well. Obamacare will continue to complicate things and we should hope that things will stabilize soon. The pressure on the margins will continue with pretty much everyone trying to contain cost of health insurance, at the same time you have the healthcare sector constantly increasing the prices. Something has to give, and this issue is not only 2014 issue, it'll be with us for many many years. We've seen some pretty significant cuts back in 2013, so if you have been paying attention Aetna downsizing in 2014 should not surprise you at all.

Aetna Innovation, Tech and Service Ops

Layoffs reported in Innovation, Technology and Service Operations. Connecticut will be hit the most, 80 people will go. Overall we'll cut around 150 people. So, ITSO is cutting - primarily managers, and mgr assistants. In 2012 400 jobs Connecticut were eliminated,layffs, firings and voluntary separation. There will be more pressure on prices, so downwards spiral will continue. Obamacare does not help and I guarantee you things will get worse.

Blue Bell office Downsizing

I think we let go over a 100 people over last few days. This round of Aetna cuts includes case managers, they got notices on Wednesday (Blue Bell office) - I am not sure how many were cut. The rumor is that round 50% of supervisors were cut and there were around 20 supervisors over there. Each sup had around 20 people in her or his team. This all connects Coventry Health Care acquisition, the deal closed back in Spring of 2013, we already had some cuts because of this but 2014 will probably be even worse. After the merger we have around 50K employees, so unless we laid off thousands (which I doubt) the overall percentage of the workforce being let go is fairly small. I hear that the sups were treated with respect (which is not always the case) and they had options to jettison right away or to stay until this Friday. I also heard that some folks may be kept through March as they will need to transition work. At the same time, greed of our executives is immense, Bertolini took home 36 million last year plus over ten million in stock awards which will vet with time and will be tied to financial performance. This is very shameful, downsizing and job cuts at one side, and immense wealth being taken out of company's balance sheet for more than an average CEO with very little touch with reality.

Medicity acquisition

Medicity is an IT shop, AETNA does not know how to manage software business. The promise was that Medicity will operate as a separate business within Aetna, under its existing leadership lineup but AETNA is already trying to shake the execs up. Let's see what happens but my assumption is that Medicity has no more than 6 months left and after that cost savings and job cuts and downsizing will kick in. Let's see how accurate i am...

Aetna layoffs related to acquisitions

Most of our layoffs here at Aetna have to do with acquisitions - downsizing is never isolated and is prompted by some kind of acquisition or merger - as soon as we make the move, there are redundancies, potential savings, etc.

Aetna Connecticut Downsizing

I used to work at Coventry Health Care, and moved to Aetna a few years ago. I was let go in 2013, I was able to move on very quickly though. It's difficult to go through cuts if you have family and other financial responsibilities. But if you are willing to work hard and if you are really persistent you will find that job and will be able to successful overcome the challenge.

Things continue to be more difficult

I think this whole Obamacare thing is not making things easier for us, overall I noticed that the work is picking up but we are not hiring as before. Aetna seems to be doing just fine but for whatever reason it seems to be harder for us who are in the trenches.

Who's next

IT is under the magnifying glass, the execs are looking for any opportunity to save money - AETNA has been cutting IT for years now, so do not be surprised if you hear about massive downsizing in a month or two

AETNA layoffs 2014

Is anyone aware of layoffs scheduled for 2014 for customer service? I was offered a job by AETNA in customer service department and I am about to accept but I heard rumors that layoffs are frequent. Please let me know.

IT and back office

I keep hearing about IT layoffs, we are cutting much deeper in other departments, so please stop talking about IT - Aetna is notorious about cutting in all directions - there are no mass layoffs as of end of 2013 and beginning of 2014 - we'll see how things develop with Obamacare but I'd doubt that 2014 and 2015 will be difficult years for us. Aetna is still very profitable and takes good care of its employees. I've been with the company for about 10 years now and I've seen both good and bad days - this is not a bad period. There will always be work with some one who can resolve claims - so I am not too concerned whatever happens. good luck to all of us - and let's keep fingers crossed that things will continue to be good for Aetna and all of us doing grunt work.

IT Layoffs

Multiple IT groups will be affected - Hartford, CT, Minnesota, DC and Chicago for sure. Not a big round, but there will be some fat trimming here at Aetna. For some reason, they always go after IT...

ITSO keeps getting hammered, this time around again... ITSO... We can call this ITSO layoffs instead of Aetna, as no people outside ITSO would be affected

We have a ton of layoffs, very frequent... I'd say every 6 months or so, as I said it's often more frequently than that. We have a CEO that makes tens of millions of dollars while at the same time firing and letting people go in this terrible economy? Mark is nothing special - he's just a mega manager.

I have your plan and I hate you - you always deny service and come up with ridiculous copay ways. I hope all of you lose your jobs.
