WOONSOCKET, R.I., April 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS Caremark (NYSE: CVS) today announced it expects to complete the acquisition of the Medicare Part D business of Universal American on Friday, April 29, 2011.

Upon closing, CVS Caremark and Universal American will begin working to integrate the two businesses' Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (PDPs), which will more than double the size of CVS Caremark's Medicare Part D program.
