About us

Here’s a look at where we’ve been—and where we’re going!

A bit about us

At Meritain Health, we create unrivaled connections. We’re a proud subsidiary of Aetna® and CVS Health®. This means we can connect you to over 700,000 providers nationwide, unmatched network discounts and one of the largest pharmacies. Combined with our own in-house products and valued vendor partnerships, our solutions have placed us as the second largest third party administrator (TPA) in the nation.

Our backstory

So, just who is Meritain Health? Our journey in the health care world began in 1983. Back then, you might have known us as North American Health Plans. In 2006, we officially became known as Meritain Health. From our very beginnings, one thing has always been true. Our mission is to help employers bring self-funded benefit plans to life.

As a TPA, we’re able to do things a little differently. We can help you with a flexible plan that’s designed to change with you. We’ll also make sure you save on the growing cost of care.

Plus, as industry leaders and innovators, we like to stay ahead of changing trends. Knowing them inside and out means we’re ready to meet the needs of today’s diverse employee populations. And we’ll help you stay ahead of these trends, too.

It’s all part of how we’ve guided employers for nearly 40 years. Now, as part of Aetna and the CVS Health family, we’re happy to connect employers to even stronger resources. The future looks bright!
