CVS Health CEO Karen Lynch at the company’s Feb. 16 earnings call said Aetna will rejoin the Affordable Care Act exchange markets in January 2022. Aetna originally exited the exchanges in the 2018 plan year, citing financial losses in excess of $200 million. The ACA markets have stabilized in recent years, however, reaching 11.3 million members by the end of 2020, according to AIS’s Directory of Health Plans. Market leader Centene Corp. enrolls 19.4% of that cohort, with 2,200,062 lives.
