The company expects FY14 global medical customer growth of 1%-2%, and sees continued growth in targeted customer segments.

Aetna is being investigated by the U.S. for misleading elderly and disabled people about which pharmacies would fill prescriptions in Medicare drug plans the health insurer sold them, says Bloomberg. According to the Bloomberg report, customers will be able to quit their coverage and choose a new plan this year as a result.
