CVS Delivers Strong 4Q Results Amid Mixed Aetna Performance

  • Feb 11, 2022

    For the fourth quarter and full-year 2021, CVS Health Corp. reported a strong financial performance across its vertically integrated health care business, but its health insurance division Aetna had mixed results. While Aetna delivered higher-than-expected enrollment in Medicare Advantage, it didn’t meet expectations for enrollment on the Affordable Care Act exchanges — a book of business the firm re-entered after several years away from the individual marketplaces.

    Aetna took in $20.6 billion in revenue in the third quarter of 2021, according to a CVS press release, up from $19.1 billion in the same period of 2020. It recorded a medical loss ratio of 87%, up from 86.7% in the same period last year; for the full year, Aetna reported an MLR of 85%, up from 80.9% in 2020.
