    CVS Health to acquire Aetna for $69 billion

    This year’s largest corporate acquisition will combine one of the nation’s largest pharmacy benefits managers (PBMs) and pharmacy operators with one of its oldest health insurers, whose national business ranges from employer healthcare to government plans.

    The deal comes after Aetna’s $37 billion plan to acquire smaller U.S. health insurance peer Humana Inc (HUM.N) was blocked in January by a U.S. federal judge over antitrust concerns. A proposed combination of peers Anthem Inc (ANTM.N) and Cigna Corp (CI.N) was also shot down.

    stock is down 2% overnight on the news. Guess the market is concerned.
    They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

    My employer is changing our insurance to Aetna starting next month. I wonder if this will make CVS more convenient. (We use CVS now anyway.)

    Now they can bleed you, deny your claim, and pump you full of drugs..... all conveniently under one roof.
