    /——/ I believe it will drive prices down by offering competition. CVS buying an insurance company is not like CVS buying Walgreens. Different marketplace.

    It's a pretty clear conflict of interests. It's like letting athletes gamble on games they're playing in. I would be wary of such an arrangement, and probably avoid doing business with either company. But I could be wrong, and if they're able to make it work, more power to them.

    But it's not like it's a new insurance company, Aetna been around a long time.

    If it goes through I imagine it may drive down pharmacy prices if you purchase them from CVS but will not do a thing about the cost of their health insurance. At 69 Billion they're in it to make a profit and gain every penney back they spent.

    You really are making me laugh at the idea you believe this to be true.

    Seriously, you think they live in mortal fear of us ?

    Holding my side it hurts so much.
