Who We Are

Health care is personal, which is why Texas Health Aetna is uniquely rooted in North Texas and focuses on delivering customized care to neighbors throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Texas Health Aetna is blurring the lines of traditional health care plans and health systems, creating a truly integrated solution that’s simple to navigate and puts the member’s experience first. Leveraging the strengths of two leading organizations, Texas Health Resources and Aetna, this local health plan can help members save on cost while still receiving the highest quality of care. We are reinventing the health care experience.

Through this collaboration, Texas Health Aetna is supported by the hospitals, specialty facilities and physician offices of Southwestern Health Resources (which includes the renowned UT Southwestern Medical Center), Texas Health Resources, Catalyst Health Network, Methodist Health System and TXCIN. The combined services, expertise and geographic reach of these networks makes Texas Health Aetna a health care resource unlike any other in North Texas.
