We are offering $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of our 1.50% senior notes due 2017 (the "2017 Notes"), $1,000,000,000 aggregate principal amount of our 2.75%
senior notes due 2022 (the "2022 Notes") and $500,000,000 aggregate principal amount of our 4.125% senior notes due 2042 (the "2042 Notes"). The 2017 Notes, the 2022 Notes
and the 2042 Notes are collectively referred to in this prospectus supplement as the "Notes." The offering and sale of each series of Notes is not conditioned on the sale of any
other series of Notes.
The 2017 Notes will bear interest at a rate of 1.50% per year and will mature on November 15, 2017. The 2022 Notes will bear interest at a rate of 2.75% per year and will
mature on November 15, 2022. The 2042 Notes will bear interest at a rate of 4.125% per year and will mature on November 15, 2042. Interest on the Notes of each series is

On August 19, 2012, Aetna Inc. ("Aetna"), Jaguar Merger Subsidiary, Inc. ("Merger Sub") and Coventry Health Care, Inc. ("Coventry") entered into an agreement and plan of
merger (as amended, the "merger agreement"), pursuant to which, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, Aetna Inc. will acquire Coventry in a transaction
valued at approximately $7.3 billion, including the assumption of Coventry debt (the "merger"), based on the closing price of Aetna common shares on August 17, 2012. We expect
to use the net proceeds of this offering to finance, together with cash on hand and approximately $500 million of commercial paper, the cash portion of the purchase price of the
merger. See "Use of Proceeds." If the merger has not been completed by November 19, 2013 (or such later date to which the end date for the consummation of the merger may be
extended by agreement between Aetna and Coventry, as described herein) or if, prior to such date, the merger agreement is terminated, we will be obligated to redeem all of the
Notes at a redemption price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest to, but not including, the special mandatory redemption
date (as defined herein). See "Description of the Notes--Special Mandatory Redemption."
The Notes will be unsecured senior obligations of our company and will rank equally with all of our other existing and future unsecured and unsubordinated indebtedness.
The Notes will not be listed on any securities exchange. Currently, there is no public market for the Notes.
Investing in the Notes involves risks. See "Risk Factors" included or incorporated by reference herein, as described beginning on
page S-5 of this prospectus supplement.
Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or determined if this
prospectus supplement or the related prospectus is truthful or complete. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

We are not required to establish a sinking fund to retire or repay the Notes of any series.

Special Mandatory Redemption
If the merger has not been completed by November 19, 2013 (or such later date to which the end date for
the consummation of the merger may be extended by agreement between Aetna and Coventry, as described
herein) or if, prior to such date, the merger agreement is terminated, we will be obligated to redeem all of
the Notes at a redemption price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the Notes, plus accrued
and unpaid interest to, but not including, the special mandatory redemption date. The "special mandatory
redemption date" means the 30th day (or if such day is not a business day, the first business day thereafter)
following the transmission of a notice of special mandatory redemption, which shall be transmitted no later
than 60 days after the occurrence of the event triggering redemption. See "Description of the Notes--
Special Mandatory Redemption."

Repurchase upon Change of Control
Upon the occurrence of both (1) a Change of Control (as defined in "Description of the Notes") and (2) a

purchase all of the Notes of such series at a price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the Notes of
such series, plus any accrued and unpaid interest to the date of repurchase. See "Description of the Notes--
Repurchase Upon a Change of Control."

Ranking
The Notes will be our senior unsecured and unsubordinated obligations and will rank equally with all of

Additional Issuances
In the future we may, without the consent of the holders of the Notes of a series, increase the aggregate
principal amount of Notes of such series offered on the same terms and conditions (except that the public
offering price, issue date and first interest payment date may vary).

We expect to use the estimated $1,956,595,000 in net proceeds after deducting underwriting discounts and
commissions and estimated offering expenses from this offering to finance a portion of the cash portion of
