Appearing as a guest host on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Aetna CEO and chairman Mark Bertolini bluntly criticized ObamaCare.
Bertolini said ObamaCare is too expensive saying that the program has more people covered with insurance, “but it’s really not an affordable product for a lot of people.”
He added to get more people covered requires “a more affordable system.” According to Bertolini, the best way to make insurance cheaper and drive down costs is by putting the consumer in charge of health care decisions.
“If we’re going to fix health care, we’ve got to get at the delivery of care and the cost of care,” Bertolini said in a “Squawk Box” interview. “The ACA does none of that. The only person who’s really going to drive that is the consumer and the decisions they make.”
