USA Today

UnitedHealth and Aetna on Monday night joined the list of health giants said to be exploring a potential merger.

Citing unnamed “people familiar with the matter,” The Wall Street Journal said UnitedHealth has approached Aetna about a takeover valued at around $40 billion.

This came after a Journal report published earlier Monday cited anonymous sources saying that Anthem has approached Cigna about taking it over for about $45 billion.
