The CVS Aetna Merger is still up in the air – a $69 Billion deal.
President of the AMA, Barbara McAneny said in a statement released by the group, “The AMA has come to the conclusion that this merger would likely substantially lessen competition in many health care markets, to the detriment of the patients.”
Larry Merlo, CVS Health President and CEO, countered by saying, “The combined company will be well-positioned to reshape the consumer health care experience, putting people at the center of health care delivery to ensure they have access to high-quality, more affordable care where they are, when they need it.”
