    The CVS/Aetna Deal in 5 Quotes

    Now that an official proposal has been announced, how are industry leaders responding?


    Larry J. Merlo, President and CEO, CVS Health

    In a CVS statement:

    This combination brings together the expertise of two great companies to remake the consumer health care experience. With the analytics of Aetna and CVS Health's human touch, we will create a health care platform built around individuals. We look forward to working with the talented people at Aetna to position the combined company as America's front door to quality health care, integrating more closely the work of doctors, pharmacists, other health care professionals and health benefits companies to create a platform that is easier to use and less expensive for consumers."

    "These types of interventions [interventions to fight chronic disease] are things that the traditional health care system could be doing, but the traditional health care system lacks the key elements of convenience and coordination that help to engage consumers in their health. That's what the combination of CVS Health and Aetna will deliver."
