Aetna PPO vs Blue Cross PPO (BCBS IL)

I'll be joining a new company in IL and my company offers PPO plans from both Aetna and Blue Cross (BCBS).

Can anyone who have had experience with any of these insurances before, please suggest me which one is better - in general.

All help appreciated. Thank you.

Aetna? not health insurance but if they are like their auto insurance the y are abusive and a poor company.
Blue Cross? Went with Anthem which is a breakoff of blue cross very very good insurance. Never had trouble with blue cross ever.

Have had BCBS for many years and quite happy with it. It has always had a very good reputation and the PPO plan in our company is quite hassle-free for the consumer. Have had many other plans, too, but prefer BCBS.

I have had both (live in another state). Would choose BC any day over Aetna. No hassles and lots of doctors participate.
