“(Bloomberg) – CVS Health has closed its $70 billion deal to buy health insurer Aetna, ending months of reviews by state and federal regulators.
The companies announced the takeover almost a year ago in December 2017, promising to create an integrated health-care company whose pharmacy locations could be hubs for medical services while better managing patients.”
It should be noted that this very complex merger has already resulted in the spinoff of the CVS Medicare Rx Program Silverscript. It is unclear what other affects will follow. – Reeve
