    Standard & Poor's Corp. on Friday placed Humana Inc. under review with negative implications following the U.S. Justice Department's Thursday lawsuit to block the health insurer's $37 billion merger with Aetna Inc.

The New York-based ratings agency also put Hartford, Connecticut-based Aetna under review, as there's a chance S&P will bump Aetna's rating up a notch if the merger deal ultimately falls through, citing the avoidance of financial and integration risk that could come from the deal.
