John W. Jones, Jr., chair of Pepper Hamilton's Health Care Transactions and Regulatory practices and a member of the Leadership Team of the Health Sciences Department, was quoted in the December 6, 2017 CBS MoneyWatch article, "Could Your Pharmacy Replace Your Doctor?"
"This is an opportunity for Aetna to not only grow, but really control the covered lives and population that they are insuring," said John Jones, partner and chair of health care transactions, pharmacy and supply chain practices at law firm Pepper Hamilton.
But not everyone is convinced consumers will benefit from the deal. "Where's the doctor in all this?" asked Jones. "Should we have retail executives who may be more concerned about profit than care making decisions about treatment? That could be a concern."
