Companies Seek Strength In Odd-Couple Partnerships In An Industry Defined By Upheaval
More and more, health companies are broadening their security and their reach by moving beyond their traditional boundaries.
The New York Times:
As Health Care Changes, Insurers, Hospitals And Drugstores Team Up
They seem like odd couples: Aetna, one of the nation’s largest health insurers, is in talks to combine with CVS Health, which manages pharmacy benefits. The Cleveland Clinic, a highly regarded health system, joined forces with an insurance start-up, Oscar Health, to offer individuals a health plan in Ohio. Aetna also has new partnerships with large health systems that include hospitals and doctors’ groups in Northern California and Virginia. (Abelson, 11/26)
