    Aetna Contracts CVS Caremark to Run Its PBM

    Robb I think this deal was structured in this manner to avoid FTC review.
    Key points I see:

    *Aetna employees will now work for Caremark (from the numbers it sounds like a mail order facility that was "sold" to Caremark).

    *Aetna wanted to unload its PBM.

    *Long Term deal

    I am waiting to see what is disclosed on the conference call and 10Q.
    I recall the "merger of equals", but it was actually a CVS acquisition of Caremark.
