Overview of Aetna’s History
How did Aetna, Inc. get its start? Out of Hartford, the small life insurance company got its break in 1861, when they took an aggressive strategy to boost sells by promoting their policies. On the heels of the Civil War, their strategy paid off as they rode the surge of the wartime economy. In 1891, Aetna issued its first accident policy, taking the first step towards becoming a more diverse company. Soon after, they entered into the health insurance business. By 1919, Aetna was offering group life insurance coverage and group disability policies. Over the next few decades, the company would continue to grow, diversifying the services and products they offered along the way. In 2006, they acquired Broadspire, a major provider of disability and causality claims management services. Now, the company has expanded to having an international presence.
