HARTFORD, Conn.--(Business Wire)--
Aetna (NYSE: AET) announced it has appointed Jeff Brown as the head of Aetna
Voluntary Plans. Brown is responsible for product strategy, pricing and
positioning, and overall operations for the business line. Voluntary plans
provide supplemental benefits, such as critical illness or accident plans, that
can be paid for through payroll deductions. These plans give consumers more
flexibility to choose the coverage that meets their unique needs. 

"Aetna`s voluntary plans - such as critical illness, accident and hospital
indemnity plans - naturally complement Aetna`s core medical offerings and help
consumers and employers balance cost and coverage needs," said Brown. "I am very
excited to have the opportunity to join the voluntary team. In addition to
enhancing our consumer-directed health care offerings, the Aetna voluntary
business also offers solutions for the growing part-time employee market." 

Brown joins Aetna from Colonial Life, where he served as Chief Marketing Officer
and led the company in strategy, planning, product development, and other
initiatives. He holds a bachelor`s degree from The University of Alabama and an
MBA from Cornell University. 

"We are excited to have Jeff join our team and lead our growth strategy," said
Karen S. Rohan, executive vice president and head of Local and Regional
Businesses. "The voluntary benefits marketplace is expanding rapidly and Aetna
is uniquely positioned to offer employers benefit solutions that help protect
their employees` physical and financial well-being."
