Medicaid Fraud Suit Could Hurt Aetna’s Future Bid Chances

Editor’s note: This article has been updated to include a statement from Aetna.

While the outcome of the suit is far from certain, and the Dept. of Justice opted not to intervene in the matter, legal experts say the case may have merit — and Medicaid insiders say that Aetna’s reputation may take a hit.
