CarePoint Health announced on June 3 that it will be fully in-network with all major health insurers.
Its three hospitals – Hoboken University Medical Center, Christ Hospital and Bayonne Medical Center – reached an agreement with Aetna to join its network effective Aug. 1, 2021. Through this agreement, CarePoint’s facilities will be able to provide high-quality care to Aetna members on an in-network basis.
With this Aetna agreement, CarePoint now participates with all major insurance carriers providing the majority of patients in Hudson County in-network access to CarePoint Health. CarePoint continues to participate with Medicare, Medicaid, and most Medicare and Medicaid replacement plans.
The expansion of participating insurance plan options will provide more flexibility for patients in and around Hudson County and underscores CarePoint’s commitment to delivering quality care to these communities in a unique and patient-focused approach.
“Offering health care to Aetna members on an in-network basis in our hospitals across Hudson County – Bayonne Medical Center, Hoboken University Medical Center and Christ Hospital – is an exciting expansion of our services and part of our commitment to patient-centered care. This will lead to increased access to top quality care and the improvement in patient health starting August 1st.” said Dr. Achintya Moulick, chief executive officer, CarePoint Health. “With the recent opening of the Women’s Center and launch of CarePoint’s Innovation Center and Center for Personalized Health later this month, CarePoint will bring more choice and benefits to the residents of Hudson County.”
