CVS Health Closes In On Deal To Buy Aetna

Wait a minute… Anybody remember this, Anthem Partners With CVS Health To Launch New PBM , basically CVS (Caremark) will be Anthem’s backroom PBM meaning “CVS will process claims and handle related ‘prescription fulfillment.'” Now, CVS is allegedly closing in on a deal to Buy Aetna.  Let’s lay out some facts:

CVS Health is in retail healthcare, owns a Pharmacy Benefit Manager (Caremark), partnered with Anthem to be their backroom Pharmacy Benefit Manager for IngenioRx, and closing in on a deal to purchase Aetna. Think for yourself, but definitely seems like there might be a conflict of interest there.
