Khang & Khang LLP (the "Firm") announces the filing of a class action lawsuit against Aetna Inc. ("Aetna" or the "Company") (NYSE: AET) concerning possible violations of federal securities laws.

The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: Aetna and its senior executives attempted to sway Aetna's engagement in the Public Exchanges for positive treatment from regulators in regards to the Humana acquisition; that the Company threatened to rescind its participation in public health insurance exchanges if the Department of Justice ("DOJ") attempted to block the merger; that Aetna withdraw from some public health insurance exchanges, as per its threat of leaving the marketplace once the DOJ filed suit to improve its litigation; that Aetna withdrew from public health insurance exchanges that were profitable for Aetna; and that as a result, Defendants' statements regarding Aetna's business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
