Aetna-Piedmont come to agreement


By Pat Cooper

Just in the nick of time, Piedmont Healthcare has reached agreement with Aetna/Coventry on a new three-year contract, which will come as a relief to policyholders in the Fayette and Coweta County area.
In early January, policyholders received word that the hospital and its physicians group would be out-of-network providers as of January 31, unless a new agreement was reached. Policyholders were facing the prospect of having their health care costs spiral upward.
Under the agreement, Aetna/Coventry members will continue to receive covered benefits, at in-network rates, from five hospitals within Piedmont Healthcare (Piedmont Atlanta Hospital, Piedmont Fayette Hospital, Piedmont Mountainside Hospital, Piedmont Newnan Hospital and Piedmont Henry Hospital) and the affiliated outpatient centers/services.
Members also will have access to the more than 1,000 physicians in the Piedmont Physicians Group, Piedmont Heart Institute and Piedmont Clinic.
