U.S. drops whistleblower lawsuit against UnitedHealth, Reuters reports

The U.S. has dropped a lawsuit accusing UnitedHealth of submitting false Medicare claims a week after a U.S. District Judge ruled that the lawsuit failed to identify any UnitedHealth officers who acted wrongly, reported Reuters. "We are pleased with the government's decision to dismiss these meritless claims," stated a UnitedHealth spokesman, according to Reuters. Reference Link

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.

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.

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).
