CVS Health to Aquire Aetna

On Monday, Aetna confirmed that CVS Health, the largest pharmacy health care provider in the U.S., has agreed to acquire Aetna. The acquisition will not immediately effect products being sold today.

CVS Health President and Chief Executive Officer Larry J. Merlo said, “This combination brings together the expertise of two great companies to remake the consumer health care experience. With the analytics of Aetna and CVS Health’s human touch, we will create a health care platform built around individuals. We look forward to working with the talented people at Aetna to position the combined company as America’s front door to quality health care, integrating more closely the work of doctors, pharmacists, other health care professionals and health benefits companies to create a platform that is easier to use and less expensive for consumers.”
