  1. I wouldn’t bet on United staying in Lakewood much longer, based on how they’ve been cutting services they’re obviously abandoning Lakewood. The only real options are Aetna and Amerigroup who’s been investing a lot of infrastructure here in Lakewood. Talk to your Dr I guess.

  2. My pediatrician let me know that United is cutting their relationship with Chop as well. Amerigroup covers DuPont hostipal which apparently is also a class A hospital while my understanding is that Aetna has neither. Again you should consult w your doctor. My pediatrician recommended Amerigroup but that’s just my pediatrician.
