UnitedHealth introduces 2018 Medicare Advantage, prescription drug plans

UnitedHealthcare introduced its 2018 Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans, featuring stable premiums and benefits, broad access and choices, and a personalized experience to help people live healthier lives. "UnitedHealthcare's Medicare Advantage plans offer greater simplicity, personalization and value for the health care dollar, while providing benefits, services and features not found with Original Medicare. More than 60% of all Medicare Advantage enrollment growth in 2017 has been through UnitedHealthcare, the exclusive provider of AARP-branded Medicare plans." The company will expand its Medicare Advantage offering to nearly 100 new counties, giving about 1.5 million more Medicare eligibles the opportunity to choose UnitedHealthcare to meet their health care needs.

Piper says Advisory Board deal should be marginally accretive to UnitedHealth
Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Wieland said Advisory Board's (ABCO) deal to merge its healthcare business with United Healthcare's (UNH) OptumInsights should be marginally accretive to UnitedHealth and add to his confidence in his FY18 OptumInsights growth estimates. He keeps a Neutral rating on Advisory Board shares and raised his price target on the stock to $54.29 from $51 to reflect the combined estimated amount being paid to shareholders by Optum and Vista Equity, the buyers of Advisory's education business.

Bernstein does not anticipate ACA fix/repeal before 2018 election
While noting the resignation of Health Secretary Tom Price, Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes says he does not anticipate an Affordable Care act fix or ACA repeal before the 2018 election. The analyst expects tax reform will "suck the oxygen out of the room" until close to the election. A fix for 2019 is possible, but faces the headwind of the 2018 election campaign, he contends, adding that he believes CSR funding could be included in a trade for the upcoming budget and the Health Insurance Fee could be suspended as part of tax reform, but both are not highly likely at this point. Publicly traded companies in the space include Aetna (AET), Anthem (ANTM), Centene (CNC), Cigna (CI), Health Net (HNT), Humana (HUM), Molina Healthcare (MOH), UnitedHealth (UNH) and WellCare (WCG).
