AETNA   International is one of the industry’s largest and most prominent international health benefits provider. As part of Aetna Inc., which was founded in 1853 and is now a CVS Health business, Aetna International shares in the heritage of more than 160 years of expertise. Our commitment to helping create a stronger, healthier global community means we have grown to a membership of more than 900,000 members worldwide.

Aetna International also offers customized technological and health management solutions for health care systems, government entities and large employers to improve people’s health, enhance quality of care and contain costs.

vHealth was launched in May 2017 with the aim of making high-quality health care easier and more accessible to Aetna members. Supported by experienced doctors, it uses the latest digital technology to help people manage their health and wellbeing directly from their mobiles, tablets or personal computers.

In regions like Dubai, the service is already having a huge impact on the way members think about their health. Rather than viewing medical appointments as an inconvenience, they now enjoy consultations with highly trained doctors in the comfort of their own home, arrange diagnostic tests at their office and have medication delivered directly to their door.

With new services being added all the time, vHealth is particularly relevant to expats and business travellers who need health care support in different locations. But it’s just as useful to local nationals who like to be in control of their health without disrupting their day.
