Business Strategy and Outlook

| Julie Utterback |

CVS aims to be the most customer-centric health company in the United States and has spent over a decade positioning itself as a leader in healthcare services, with the acquisitions of pharmacy benefit manager Caremark (2007) and insurance provider Aetna (2018) defining its strategic direction. CVS' top-tier retail pharmacy, health insurer, and PBM franchises create the potential to improve health outcomes and even bend the healthcare cost curve for its clients, and going forward, the firm hopes to add more primary care assets to that equation.

Company Profile CVS

Business Description

Following its acquisition of Aetna in late 2018, CVS Health now provides an even more integrated healthcare-services offering for its members. Legacy CVS combined both the largest pharmacy benefit manager, processing over 2 billion adjusted claims annually, and a sizable pharmacy operation, including nearly 10,000 retail pharmacy locations primarily in the U.S. Adding a managed-care organization with 24 million medical members gives the company a strong position in the insurance industry and should help CVS better control overall healthcare costs for its clients.
