Aetna: 87% of Medicare Advantage members enrolled in plans 4 stars or higher

Aetna's Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plans have once again received higher than average ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in the annual Star Ratings, released on October 11. For 2018, Aetna's MAPD plans earned an overall weighted average rating of 4.0 out of 5.0 stars, with 87% of Medicare members enrolled in plans rated 4.0 or higher -- the highest percentage among publicly traded companies. Aetna will expand into 128 new counties for 2018, offering Individual Medicare plans in a total of 991 counties across the country; this includes expansion into Massachusetts. Of these counties, 905, or 91%, will have a plan offering rated 4.0 stars or greater.

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).

Leerink convinced Amazon entering drug distribution within two years
After calls with pharmacy benefit managers and retail pharmacy specialists, Leerink analyst Ana Gupte says she's convinced that Amazon.com (AMZN) "will almost certainly" enter the drug distribution value chain within two years, evolving into a more disruptive offering over time. Amazon's move is most threatening for retail pharmacies Walgreens Boots Alliance (WAB), CVS Health (CVS) and Wal-Mart (WMT), Gupte tells investors in a research note. The analyst calls Amazon both an opportunity and threat for Express Scripts (ESRX) and views UnitedHealth (UNH) and Humana (HUM) as "largely buffered." Gupte's conversations with specialists indicate Amazon is hiring relevant talent and is in active discussions with mid-market pharmacy benefit managers and possibly even with large players such as Prime Therapeutics. It is believed Amazon will start by capturing share in both the cash paying and third party mail order and possibly specialty pharmacy segments, Gupte notes. She expects Anthem (ANTM), Aetna (AET) and Cigna (CI) will likely to contemplate Amazon's entry in their upcoming PBM contract decisions.

Morgan Stanley says Molina CEO pick brings valuable experience
Joseph Zubretsky brings valuable MCO experience to his post as the new CEO of Molina Healthcare (MOH), said Morgan Stanley analyst Zack Sopcak, who added that he would be a buyer on weakness in the shares given that he expects earnings power to be unlocked over the next 12-18 months. During Zubretsky's tenure as CEO of Hanover Insurance (THG), the company's stock rose nearly 20%, while Aetna (AET) shares were up about 4% during his 6 years as CFO there, noted Sopcak, who keeps an Overweight rating on Molina.

Ending of ACA subsidies most negative for Centene, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte says the shutting off of the cost sharing subsidies on Affordable Care Act exchanges is most negative for Centene (CNC). The company is "highly profitable" on the exchanges at 15% of earnings, Gupte tells investors in a research note. Molina Healthcare (MOH) and Anthem (ANTM) are exposed on the top line but are losing money, the analyst adds. She notes that UnitedHealth (UNH), Humana (HUM) and Aetna (AET) have exited the exchanges while WellCare (WCG) has not been on them. Centene in premarket trading is down 6% to $88.00 while Molina is down 3% to $61.50.
