SPOTLIGHT: Aetna vows to keep its financial promises

Aetna's five-year settlement with medical societies and physicians--charging it of developing schemes to underpay doctors--has expired as of this month. However, the plan has vowed to keep up with some key doctor-friendly promises, including allowing physicians to leave its network 90 days after giving notice and to file claims up to 120 days after the date of care.
