CVS Partners With Aetna To Offer Customers More In-Store Services
The pharmacy brand is expanding its healthcare services through a merger with Aetna to include basic checkups, blood testing, disease screenings and more in-store
CVS is attempting to be less of a place to simply pick up a prescription and more of a place where customers can receive healthcare services. One of the main ways the retailer hopes to achieve this goal is through a new $70-billion merger with insurance provider Aetna.
CVS will be piloting MinuteClinics in select stores. These clinics hope to keep customers out of hospitals and doctor's offices by providing services like basic checkups, blood testing and disease screenings. In addition, CVS locations will be redesigned to allow for the expanded healthcare offerings.
