Aetna To Provide Assurant Health Customers Access To Flexible, Convenient Pharmacy Services

Aetna (NYSE: AET) announced today a multi-year pharmacy benefit management agreement with Assurant Health, a leading provider of major medical, supplemental and fixed-benefit health plans for individuals, families and small employers. Aetna will deliver pharmacy benefit management solutions that will help manage costs and improve member health for Assurant Health’s customers in the 47 states in which they do business. Assurant Health customers will also benefit from Aetna’s agreement with CVS Caremark and their broad, national network of participating pharmacies, comprehensive pharmacy care support, and easy-to-use tools to manage their prescriptions. The agreement represents a full replacement of Assurant Health’s current pharmacy benefit manager for the majority of its customers, and will be effective on January 1, 2013.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to expand into a new marketplace and demonstrate the value of our integrated pharmacy benefit management capabilities,” said Laurie Brubaker, head of Aetna Pharmacy Benefit Management.

Assurant Health focuses on providing affordable health care coverage and services that help customers better manage their health care dollars.

“We understand consumers want clear information and tools to help them make cost-effective decisions when it comes to managing their health care budgets,” said Adam Lamnin, president and CEO of Assurant Health. “We are pleased that our customers will have access to tools through Aetna and CVS Caremark that will help them make the most of their prescription benefits.”
