COMMENTS

This sequence is related to paired pattern P_2 in Section 3.2 in Pan and Remmel's link.
By symmetry, a(n) is also the number of NorthEast lattice paths from (0,0) to (n,n) that bounce off the diagonal y = x to the left exactly once.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1 + f(x) + 2*x)^2/(1  f(x) + (5 + f(x))*x)^2, where f(x) = sqrt(1  4*x).
