It was just a few days ago that Costco announced their unique Pharmacy Benefit Manager program focusing on small businesses that are near their retail store locations.
Aetna and Costco have worked together before with prescriptions plans and I dug this one out from 2008 (line below) and it goes back to when many of the retail stores were offering the $2 and $4 generics.
As far as other retail locations, you can jump over to Best Buy where Aetna consumer healthcare software is sold. BD
