Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) Chicago has signed an agreement with Aetna, making it a contracted oncology care provider.

The in-network options offered through Aetna include but are not limited to the following: HMO, PPO, EPO, POS, QPOS, Elect Choice, Open Choice, Managed Choice POS, Aetna Choice POS II, Aetna Select, Aetna Student Health, indemnity plans with network incentives, Aetna Signature Administrators®, Joint Claims Administration, Meritain/Meritain Shared Administrative Services, Passport to Healthcare® and National Advantage Program.

Basu, MD, MBA. “We thank Aetna for this partnership, and we look forward to growing our relationship nationwide.”
