Oct 24, 2011

More ways for members to stay healthy – and save money!

You’re always looking for ways to help your clients’ employees get and stay healthy. Through our discount programs* members can save on the cost of many health care programs, products and services not typically covered by their health plan.


With recent enhancements to the Aetna Weight ManagementSM discount program members now have more ways to achieve their weight loss goals.


Also, as part of our Zagat® discount program, members can now try out free of charge before purchasing their membership!


Aetna Weight Management discount program enhancements – CalorieKing® and eDiets® 

Members now have another choice in weight management vendors, providing them with more ways to meet their weight-loss goals and save money. CalorieKing offers a step-by-step web-based program that teaches independent, long-term weight control to help achieve weight-loss goals and permanent changes in behavior. 


Through the CalorieKing Program, members can**: 

  • Join an Annual or Monthly CalorieKing Program and take advantage of a 7-day free trial period.
  • Then get 15 percent off when they continue their Annual Program membership.
  • Save at least 15 percent when they buy products from the CalorieKing Store.
  • Take advantage of a special offer for Aetna members – a free copy of The CalorieKing Calorie, Fat and Carbohydrate Counter book, with free shipping, when they join the Annual Program.

Members can now receive greater discounts from eDiets on the programs and products offered today.  They can***:

  • Enroll in the Meal Delivery Plan (5- or 7-day) and save 25 percent on the cost of food delivered right to their door.
  • Enroll in the Online Diet Plan and save 25 percent on the price of their monthly or annual membership. 
  • Receive a 25 percent discount on all purchases from the Online Store. 

A special offer from Zagat provides trusted Ratings and Reviews for thousands of restaurants worldwide to help Zagat members find the best restaurant for any occasion. Our Zagat discount program now offers members a free 60-day Premium Membership+.  After 60 days their account will automatically be renewed for a one-year Premium Membership at the 30 percent discounted rate++ (see below).  They can cancel their membership at any time by contacting Zagat customer service.


Members can still:

  • Receive a 30 percent discount when they purchase a one-year, full-access Premium Membership++. 
  • Get up to 25 percent off purchases at the Zagat Survey Shop with their membership.
  • Get unlimited access to Zagat Ratings and Reviews of restaurants on the go with from their mobile device.


The site was recently rebranded and expanded to provide users with a better online experience.


We hope you, your clients and their employees find these program enhancements valuable. For more information about these enhancements, as well as our other discount programs, contact your Aetna account representative.
