J.P. Morgan Conference: Cigna Is Coy About Deals; CVS Touts Provider Purchases

The annual J.P. Morgan Health Care Conference in San Francisco, which took place from Jan. 8-11, has a well-earned reputation as the site of dealmaking. Last year, for example, rumors of CVS Health Corp.’s eventual deal to acquire primary care provider Oak Street began to emerge.

The 2024 edition proved to be less fruitful for dealmaking as far as managed care firms were concerned — never mind the $6.4 billion in deals announced at the start of the conference by Johnson & Johnson, Merck & Co. Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp.

Still, CVS and The Cigna Group each faced questions about the aftermath of megadeals, both real and imagined.
