CVS May Join Insurers’ Home Health Care M&A Spree

CVS Health Corp. is on the verge of making a bid on home health care provider Signify Health, Inc., according to an Aug. 7 report from the Wall Street Journal. Health care insiders tell AIS Health, a division of MMIT, that CVS’s rumored move — part of a planned $25 billion transaction spree — accelerates an existing trend of diversifying health care firms buying their way into home care, even as the rate of transactions in the space slows.

CVS, the parent company of Aetna, is just the latest national health insurance firm with designs in the home care market. As the deal has not been announced, terms have not been disclosed, but Signify’s market capitalization is north of $4.5 billion, per the Journal. UnitedHealth Group, the multi-hyphenate parent company of insurer UnitedHealthcare, announced a $6 billion cash bid for home care provider LHC Group, Inc. in June.
