CVS deal: More elderly care on horizon

CVS Health will pay more than $10 billion for pharmaceutical distributor Omnicare in a deal primed to feed its fast-growing specialty drug business and tap a lucrative and growing market: care for the elderly.

Omnicare’s long-term care business operates in 47 states and the District of Columbia.
