On December 3rd, drug retailer CVS and health insurer Aetna announced their companies’ $69-billion merger deal. Aetna’s CEO Mark Bertolini said the deal will “dramatically further empower consumers,” while Larry J. Merlo, president and CEO of CVS Health, said it will “create a platform that is easier to use and less expensive for consumers.”
