According to IHT: “Health insurer Aetna Inc. says it will eliminate 1,000 jobs, or about 2.8 percent of its work force, to reduce costs.”
“Aetna — the third-largest U.S. health insurer — employs 36,208 people. It has about 37.2 million members.
The company said last month it would cut staff and reduce costs as it deals with the U.S. recession and job losses, which is swelling the ranks of the uninsured.”
