CVS pharmacy sign

CVS is shifting further away from only providing pharmacy services as they increasingly expand their primary care offerings. Among the changes they’ll be making include breaking new ground with their subsidiary health insurance company, Aetna. Starting in 2023, Aetna will join the California ACA individual insurance exchange marketplace in certain locales, according to a press release.

The move offers an opportunity to expand the number of individuals who use Aetna insurance. Some 34 million people are currently insured through Aetna plans.

Aetna users have access to traditional medical care, including outpatient services, emergency care, and prescription medications, as well as virtual care and walk-in appointments through CVS’s Minute Clinics.
