Aetna Inc. posted a big net loss Tuesday, partly due to the failure of a long-term care insurer. The Hartford, Connecticut-based insurer is reporting $381 million in net losses for the first quarter on $15.2 billion in revenue, compared with $737 million in net income on $15.7 billion in revenue for the first quarter of 2016. . . .
