Humana, JSA partner to add PCP to Medicare Advantage Plan network in Florida

JSA Medical Group, a DaVita Medical Group (DVA), and Humana (HUM) have teamed up to add one primary care practice to Humana's Medicare Advantage Plan network in Florida. Humana is adding this new primary care practice location to its network in an effort to improve access to high quality care and helping to increase patients' ability to manage their own care which may improve their health and well-being. The new practice operated by JSA Medical Group accepts certain Medicare Advantage plans administered by Humana and does not accept Medicare Advantage plans administered by other carriers. The new practice will also accept traditional Medicare.

Price targets cut on dialysis stocks at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst David MacDonald lowered his price targets on dialysis stocks, citing CMS' recent request for information and resulting payor risk and lower assumed multiples. The analyst cut his price target on American Renal Associates (ARA) to $24 from $34, on DaVita (DVA) to $66 from $80 and on Fresenius Medical (FMS) to $48 from $54. He maintains Buy ratings on American Renal and Fresenius but said he does not expect the stocks to rise significantly until the CMS matter is resolved. MacDonald keeps a Hold rating on DaVita.

Baird views news from DaVita as 'de-risking event'
Baird analyst Whit Mayo views today's announcement from DaVita as a "de-risking event" with higher than expected patient numbers. The disclosed $230M worst-case operating income hit includes on-exchange and off-exchange patients, and is in the range of what was expected, Mayo tells investors in a research note. DaVita earlier today announced that it will suspend support for applications to the American Kidney Fund for charitable premium assistance by Medicaid patients who are seeking additional coverage through an Affordable Care Act plan. The change will affect approximately 2,000 patients, the company said. To reflect a "scenario for payer mix reversion," Mayo lowered his 2017 earnings per share estimate for DaVita to $4.06 from $4.69. He also cut his price target for the shares to $68 from $85. Mayo keeps an Outperform rating on DaVita, which is trading up 5% to $57.92.

The analyst cut his estimates, although he feels the announcement de-risks the stock. Mayo maintained his Outperform rating on DaVita shares.
