Aetna CEO declines to discuss CVS bid reports on conference call

NEW YORK, Oct 31 (Reuters) - Aetna Inc Chief Executive Mark Bertolini on Tuesday said during an analyst conference call to discuss third-quarter results that the company would not discuss rumor or speculation, referencing recent source-based reports that it was in merger talks with CVS Health Corp.
