This morning, Aetna announced that they are acquiring the Medicare Supplement businesses from Genworth.  The companies acquired include Continental Life of Brentwood TN and American Continental.  Aetna paid $290 million for Genworth’s 145,000 Medicare Supplement policies and the business unit based in Brentwood, TN.  The acquisition substantially increases Aetna’s presence in the Medicare Supplement market.  Prior to the acquisition, Aetna had approximately 10,000 Medicare Supplement policies on the books.

The deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Here is a link to the story from the AP.
