Aetna to close prescription delivery hub in Florida, cut 106 jobs

Aetna will close its mail-order prescription delivery location in Plantation, Fla., resulting in 106 layoffs, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

The decision is part of the insurer's consolidation with CVS Health, Aetna spokesperson Anjie Coplin told the newspaper. Aetna and CVS closed their merger last November.

The affected employees will lose their jobs by May 13. The move will affect several positions, including pharmacy technicians, accounts receivable analysts, operations managers and pharmacists.
