Aetna insured the lives of slaves during the 1850’s, shortly after its founding in 1853 and reimbursed slave owners when their slaves died.
An Aetna spokesperson issued an apology stating, "Aetna has long acknowledged that for several years shortly after its founding in 1853 that the company may have insured the lives of slaves. We express our deep regret over any participation at all in this deplorable practice."
Aetna has no plans to make reparations since the slave policies were legal before slavery was abolished.
