WASHINGTON — Larry Merlo, chief executive of CVS (CVS), has big ideas for how his company will transform health care. It’s merging with Aetna, one of the country’s largest insurers. It’s opening new clinics where patients can get blood tests along with their toilet paper. And it might one day deliver drugs by drone.
“We are doing some work on that, believe it or not,” Merlo said, visibly flustered, in response to a question about whether the company had looked into distributing prescriptions by drone.
