Saratoga Benefits Signs Up Inaugural Aetna/Virtua Partnership in New Jersey

Saratoga Benefits is the first health insurance agent to sign up a New Jersey client to Aetna’s new health insurance program, Aetna Whole Health – Virtua.

The Aetna Virtua Partnership, available in Burlington, Camden and Gloucester Counties, offers a 15-50% cost savings and lower co-pays compared to competitive plans in NJ. It allows patients to have access to doctors within their existing Virtua network, which includes 1600 physicians, sixteen urgent care facilities and three hospitals.

Regal Wine Imports’ Vice President of Human Resources, Heather Gill, explained why the Moorestown, NJ company made this choice.

“Giving our employees choice is important,” said Gill. “Anything we can do to reduce their costs and provide better benefits, while also save money for the company, is a win-win situation.”

In South Jersey, Virtua is known as a major healthcare provider that boasts excellent physicians and quality care, all of which are convenient to the majority of Regal Wine Imports’ employees. Employees still have the ability to go to any Aetna providers and hospitals in their larger network.

“We hope this innovative approach will be successful and that our employees continue elect this choice in the years to come,” added Gill.

Virtua provides services through Virtua Medical Group with 302 physicians and other clinicians, and at its urgent care centers, hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, health and wellness centers, fitness centers, home health services, long-term care and rehabilitation centers, and paramedic program. A leader in maternal and child health services, Virtua delivers nearly 8,000 babies a year. It provides health services to 1,500 businesses, and participates in Virtua Physician Partners, a clinically integrated network of 1,400 physicians and other clinicians. Virtua is affiliated with Penn Medicine for cancer and neuroscience and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) for pediatrics.

What Has Rotary Done for My Business?

By Amy Webb, President, Saratoga Benefit Services

I’ve been a member of the Mooretown Rotary for 9 years. Initially I joined thinking it was a great place to network and meet new people. While it has turned out to be an effective place to make solid business connections, it has exceeded my expectations.

What does rotary do? The mission of Rotary is ‘service above self.’  Our club and its members truly live this motto.  The amount of good that our chapter has done locally and internationally is amazing, from providing over $30,000/year in scholarships to local students to supporting water and solar projects in third world countries.

What has rotary done for you personally?  Being a Rotarian has enhanced my commitment to community service and connected me with a fantastic group of like-minded people.  The saying is true that good things come to good people.  My firm, Saratoga Benefits has always done good things for the community and it has brought good things to our business as well.

Interested in Visiting? The Moorestown Lunch Rotary meets at 12:10pm at the Community House in Moorestown every Thursday.

There’s other options for those who are unable to meet every week but still would like to be a part of rotary:

Corporate Membership: This allows a company to designate several employees under one membership so they can alternate who attends the weekly meetings.

Alternative Meeting Place (AMP): This group meets twice a month in the evenings at Harvest Grill.  This group has the same benefits of a weekly group, but with a reduced time and financial commitment.

Where: Harvest Seasonal Grill, Moorestown NJ

When: 11/1 and 11/15, 5:45 – 7pm
