Humana announced mutual termination of its merger agreement with Aetna

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) today announced the mutual termination of its merger agreement with Aetna Inc. (Aetna), following a ruling from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia granting a United States Department of Justice request to enjoin the merger. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Humana is entitled to a breakup fee of $1 billion, or approximately $630 million, net of tax.

“The healthcare industry is in a dynamic state, and the public is looking to companies like Humana to improve the cost of care and the consumer experience,” said Bruce D. Broussard, Humana’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “As an independent company, we will continue to innovate and sharpen our focus on the local healthcare experience of all our members, especially seniors living with chronic conditions. Our strategy not only improves the value we bring to members, doctors and other healthcare professionals, but it also helps reduce costs and enhances the growth platform for both our health plans and our Healthcare Services businesses, thus positioning us well for long-term, sustainable growth.”

Broussard added, “We are very proud of the tremendous effort and commitment of our associates during this extended period of uncertainty and their continuing focus and dedication to helping our members achieve their best health.”

Strategic Update

As an independent company, Humana will continue to build upon its integrated care delivery strategy by intensifying its focus on people living with chronic conditions – particularly those aging into or already in Medicare Advantage or dual eligible plans. This population is fast-growing, with greater than 85 percent of seniors having at least one chronic condition and 65 percent having multiple chronic conditions (a). To further advance this strategy, the company will maintain its employer group customer focus, continuing to establish relationships with Medicare age-ins, while leveraging its clinical and operating platforms and furthering partnerships with doctors and other healthcare professionals. This brings value-added capabilities to the company’s employer group customers, particularly small to mid-size employers.

As the company’s business model demonstrates, when Humana integrates care with doctors and other healthcare professionals and serves members outside of traditional institutions, its members’ health improves, care is more cost-effective, and consumers are more engaged. These are key drivers to enabling more affordable healthcare for consumers and facilitating higher Star quality ratings, while also improving financial performance.
