We are pleased to announce that we are now “in-network” with Aetna, one of Alaska’s – and the nation’s – largest health insurance providers. Effective February 1, Alaskans covered by Aetna insurance could see a significant reduction in out-of-pocket costs when receiving care at Anchorage Bariatrics.

“We are pleased to make things a little easier for Alaskans who are struggling to lose excess weight. Now, patients covered by Aetna can choose Anchorage Bariatrics for their care instead of being told they have to see other providers who may not be their first choice, or being told they have to travel out of state, as often happens,” said Kristi Naval, RN and Practice Manager at Anchorage Bariatrics.

Aetna and Anchorage Bariatrics will now work together to not only save bariatric patients money, but to also keep the focus on the patient’s health – for both the short and long term.

Aetna has been providing insurance services for over 150 years and provides approximately 22 million Americans with health insurance.
