CVS Buying Out Aetna

Massive drugstore chain and prescription drug insurer CVS plans to buy out health insurance giant Aetna. If the deal is approved, there’s a possibility that there will be a $69 billion acquisition ($77 billion including debt) remap of the healthcare industry. It would also go down as the largest health insurance deal in history, the second biggest being Express Scripts (ESRX)’ $29 billion acquisition of Medco in 2012. If the deal went through, it would cause CVS to be in a better position to compete with other integrated health care providers, such as UnitedHealthcare. This is an ongoing story.
