Aetna, Hartford, says the new wellness message program consists of a series of electronic messages covering 14 health topics, such as childhood immunizations, hypertension and workplace safety.

Aetna will be adding messages covering 14 more health topics later this year.

The typical customer for the program probably will be an employer with about 51 to 3,000 employees, Aetna says.
