Aetna Beefs Up Before Obamacare’s Arrival
San Francisco Chronicle

Health insurer Aetna , the third-largest insurance firm in the country, made a big splash last year when it announced the acquisition of fellow insurance firm Coventry for $5.7 billion. This week Aetna will close the acquisition and finalize the deal, pushing the company’s membership base higher by millions of members. This comes not a moment too soon for Aetna. A big membership base is a key strength headed into the post-Obamacare future for the insurance industry, as questions still remain about just how insurance reform will alter the landscape of this industry going forward.
