Question: We currently have an Aetna PPO through my employer. My spouse is 53 and has a chronic illness. So far she is doing okay, but our fear is that when I retire next year, and we shop from the exchange, the potential treatment she may need won’t be as good as what I currently have with Aetna. That our options for treatment will be limited. Are these fears unfounded? Will the latest treatments be available?
Answer: The quality of health insurance coverage in 2014 will actually be better - more comprehensive and with fewer restrictions - than it is now as a result of health insurance reforms imposed by the Affordable Care Act.. You can still purchase an Aetna PPO plan if you so choose, either in the state exchange or the outside marketplace.
