Hartford, Conn., - Two insurers are partnering to bring advanced workers' compensation services to businesses throughout the Connecticut. The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc., Hartford, Conn., has contracted with Aetna to offer its customers the Aetna Workers' Comp Access (AWCA) network of health care providers. This arrangement, which became effective Sept. 1, follows a June 1 initiative when

Aetna, also based in Hartford, began providing services to The Hartford's clients in Pennsylvania. Similar plans are in the works for other states in the future, said the companies.

Through the arrangement, The Hartford, which provides workers' compensation insurance for more than 15,500 companies in Connecticut, will offers a certified workers' compensation plan that allows enrolled employers to guide injured workers to a broad network of credentialed medical providers and facilities. Through a contractual arrangement with AWCA, The Hartford will offer access to a host of services, including more than 11,300 medical care professionals and 23,000 ancillary services providers, such as durable medical equipment, home health agencies, skilled nursing facilities, laboratories, ambulatory surgicenters, diagnostic testing centers, optical facilities and orthotics facilities.
