Coventry’s acquisition by Aetna seems to have benefited both carriers, especially for the valuable Medicare audience. “It’s a deal that almost had to happen,” stated analyst Thomas Carroll. “For Aetna to really compete effectively amongst the other large, national managed-care companies, they have to do more in terms of gaining market share in the commercial business, as well as getting a bigger foothold in Medicare and Medicaid, which are the growth areas in managed care over the next decade.” Aetna gained 5 million Coventry members, including: 250,000 Medicare enrollees, 1.5 million Part D enrollees and 930,000 Medicaid enrollees. They were also able to grow two valuable audiences: smaller employers and beneficiaries who purchased individual coverage.
