Catamaran stock dives amid fears of shakeup in health plans

Although Catamaran Corp. lost only a small chunk of its business on Wednesday, its stock posted a near-double-digit loss over concerns for the company’s customer base.

Catamaran’s slide was sparked by the announcement that Walgreen Co., the largest drug store chain in the United States, will pay for 160,000 of its employees to move to a private health exchange and buy their own coverage.
