Pharmacy chain CVS has announced a new program to help improve health services and reduce cost .

The chain is acquiring health insurer Aetna for roughly $69 billion.

That deal is expected to close before thanksgiving.

The new program includes expanding services available at its minute clinics and managing common chronic diseases such as diabetes and asthma.

CVS plans to test new programs at concept stores starting early next year.
