How this relationship will impact you
There will be no immediate changes for your customers with Aetna pharmacy benefits. CVS Caremark services will be phased in to Aetna’s pharmacy programs. We expect to be able to obtain all regulatory approvals before the expected commencement date at the beginning of 2011.
Aetna is committed to a successful service enhancement implementation process. As they look to put into operation the exciting benefits of this arrangement, they will continue to share with you the strategy and timeline of their activities as details evolve into 2011.
The press release and other information about the agreement are available on Aetna's website. Please rest assured that there will be no impact to the current services of your small group customers.
