WW — Weight Watchers reimagined
All active represented employees enrolled in any Aetna medical plan (example: Aetna High Option, Basic or Select Option) can now take advantage of the WW FreestyleTM program at reduced pricing.
No matter what your goal is — to lose weight, move more, develop a more positive mindset, or all of the above — WW will bring you the science-based programs and tools that work.
By enrolling through MTA New York City Transit’sprogram [PDF], employees can take advantage of a subsidy reducing the cost of the WW membership by more than 60% of the regular membership price†. Additionally, your spouse/domestic partner, and dependents 18-26 can take advantage of this discounted pricing — making health and wellness a family affair!
† Monthly payment is required in advance. The subscriber will automatically be charged each month in accordance with company pricing until they cancel. Sold in participating areas only; may not be accepted for local and/or Workshop series in all areas. Minimum enrollment and participation required to start and maintain a Workshop in the workplace.

Aetna® Maternity Program
Learn what’s best for a healthy pregnancy and give your baby a healthy start.
Get educational material on prenatal care, signs of preterm labor, what to expect before and after delivery, and newborn care

Compare costs for doctors and health care facilities
We want to help you get the most out of your health plan. That’s why your plan includes phone support as a standard benefit. And it’s also why you may receive a call from an Aetna nurse care manager. The nurse care manager will ask you some questions in order to verify your identity and protect your privacy.
Be sure the phone number you listed in your Aetna member website is up to date so you can take full advantage of this benefit.
Ongoing support when you need it
If a time comes when you’re dealing with more complex health challenges, you can be assigned a nurse to work with you over the phone on an ongoing basis. Or if you have an ongoing health concern like diabetes, heart disease, asthma and low back pain, your nurse may call to check in from time to time. These services are included as part of your plan.
You may also get a letter or phone call from us, depending on your needs. Don’t forget, your caller ID may not say Aetna when we call. That depends on your phone carrier.
Care that works for you
As always, your care should be decided by you, your family and your doctor. But with more information, you can make better-informed decisions about your health.
Your conversations are completely confidential. We don’t share this information with your employer, and we keep all information confidential as required by law.
