Dear NYLHCA Member:

In your line of work, nothing is more important than keeping your members happy, healthy and productive. And no one is better qualified to help you reach that goal than Aetna.

I’m Al Saavedra, Aetna’s Sales Vice President for New York Labor Plans. I’ve been in the industry for over 25 years as a dedicated member of our Labor team, so I’m familiar with the nuances and challenges that health and welfare fund administrators face. I would like the opportunity to show you how we work with and for Organized Labor at Aetna.

Working hard for hard working New Yorkers. Aetna works for Labor. When you team up with Aetna, you’re representing to your benefit plan participants the quality products, services and technology they want and deserve.

When you collaborate with us, you share in:

  • A dedicated labor oriented team with 100+ years of combined experience
  • A large network in New York State and a broad national network
  • Customized wellness programs that fit your needs such as care management, patient safety programs, and discounts
  • Innovative solutions including cost-effective network designs and seamless integration with existing programs

In fact, the New York Labor Health Care Alliance couldn’t agree more. The NYLHCA consists of 40+ Union health benefit funds throughout the State of New York and growing. They have chosen Aetna as the “vendor of choice” for their PPO network and disease management programs.

So let’s get started.

Organized Labor built our country , and we appreciate how hard the members you represent work every day. Today, Aetna covers 340,000 Labor Union members and we look forward to the opportunity to work for you. Visit or contact me directly to discuss our next steps.
