HSN and Aetna Team Up to Help Customers Find the Right Medicare Advantage Plan

Tune-In to HSN December 1 and 2 to Learn More About Coverage Options Before Medicare Annual Enrollment Ends December 7th

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Dec. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading entertainment and lifestyle retailer, HSN (Nasdaq:HSNI), and Aetna have teamed once up again to help customers find the right Medicare Advantage Plan during the Medicare Annual Enrollment period, which runs through Thursday December 7, 2017.

Through the program, Aetna representatives will provide information on Medicare coverage options. Customers will have access to licensed Aetna agents who can offer personalized advice. Customers are also able to download a free Medicare checklist on HSN.com to help guide them through the decision making process. Callie Northagen hosts the full 30-minute segment, which includes testimonials from current Aetna Medicare customers.

“We are excited to partner with Aetna to offer our customers coverage options that will best suit their needs,” said Bill Brand, President of HSN. “This collaboration gives us the opportunity to go beyond just offering our customers great products to purchase.  We can now give them the information they need to make informed decisions on insurance plans they can be confident in.”

Medicare beneficiaries who have already signed up for a new plan for 2018 have until December 7 to change their minds.  Beneficiaries can connect with an Aetna representative to discuss their options during the annual enrollment period.

“We’re thrilled to return to HSN this year,” said Nancy Cocozza, senior vice president and head of Aetna Medicare. “By helping viewers understand their Medicare coverage options and what star ratings mean, we can better equip them to choose the plan that’s right for them.”

Once Medicare Annual Open Enrollment closes, HSN will continue to promote Medicare Supplement Insurance, which customers can add on to existing insurance throughout the year.

For more information on the best Medicare coverage, tune in to HSN at 6:30PM EST on December 1st and 1:00PM EST on December 2nd or go to HSN.com and search Aetna to access videos with further information and to download the checklist.
