Amazon could be getting into healthcare, and the company's reportedly had conversations with generic drugmakers about it, CNBC reports.

It's the latest hint in recent months that Amazon is serious about healthcare.

Worry about the prescription drug business being Amazon'd has sent healthcare stocks tumbling, and is even credited with sparking the potential $60 billion+ CVS-Aetna deal.

Conversations with generic drugmakers could mean that Amazon is interested in either helping generic drugmakers distribute prescriptions to pharmacies or by selling the generic prescriptions itself.

We just got another hint about Amazon's ambitions in healthcare.

CNBC reported on Thursday that Amazon has had exploratory talks with the drugmakers Sandoz, the generic drug unit of Novartis, and Mylan.
