CVS Health Corp. has enlisted the U.S. Postal Service for a new home delivery service, as the drugstore giant strives to stave off Amazon.com Inc. and other rivals. CVS struck a deal with the Postal Service to pick up prescriptions at CVS stores and bring them to customers’ homes in one or two days. CVS is rolling out the nationwide service as it fights falling sales in its roughly 9,800 pharmacies and braces for potential competition from Amazon, which has considered launching a prescription offering and has made a bigger push into medical supplies.
After months of review, the American Medical Association said state and federal regulators should block the acquisition of Aetna by CVS Health, saying the creation of a new healthcare giant would lead to higher prices and too much control of seniors' Medicare drug plans. The AMA's announcement, which came before a hearing Tuesday afternoon before state insurance regulators in California, is a surprising blow to drugstore chain CVS' $69 billion effort to takeover Aetna, the nation's third largest health insurer. The AMA's announcement comes despite the lack of discussion of the CVS-Aetna deal earlier this month at the group's annual policy-making House of Delegates meeting in Chicago.
Today, CVS Health, the leading pharmacy benefit managers, is up ~5% after announcing the launch of its drug delivery service from all of its US locations. The company has nearly 10,000 stores across the United States, and it expects to deliver customer orders within a day or two of customers placing orders on the website or app. The company also plans to offer same-day delivery service in some major cities.
The new delivery service from CVS allows customers to receive their prescriptions from any of its 9,800 stores in the U.S. as soon as the next day. Both of these delivery options will cost customers $4.99.
Walgreens and Humana plan to open two open senior-focused care centers in Walgreens stores this fall in Kansas City, Missouri.

CVS Health has said in-store clinics are a key component of its planned $69 billion acquisition of health insurer Aetna.
