UnitedHealth price target raised to $259 from $242 at Piper Jaffray

Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James raised her price target for UnitedHealth Group to $259 citing an "increasingly bullish" stance on 2018. The analyst sees potential upside to estimates from Optum growth, the close the Banmedica acquisition in Q1, and continued capital deployment. She believes her new price target, implying 11% upside, could prove conservative. James keeps an Overweight rating on UnitedHealth.

CMS Medicare Advantage Payment Notice positive for Humana, UnitedHealth, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte views the CMS 2019 Medicare Advantage Payment Notice with Methodological Changes on Risk Adjusters as a likely positive precursor to the actual rate change and a positive catalyst. The analyst believes the notice is most positive for Humana (HUM), UnitedHealth (UNH) and WellCare (WCG), but also positive for the sector as a whole including Aetna (AET), Cigna (CI), Anthem (ANTM), Centene (CNC) and Molina Healthcare (MOH). The notice offers a change in the risk adjustment methodology that is more industry friendly than the status quo and this combined with a 4% underlying cost trend expectation should offer a positive advance rate announcement in February and final in April. Gupte also expects that the Republican Administration will drive tax reform as part of an imperative to reaccelerate what is likely irreversible privatization of Medicare, after the slowdown as part of the budget cuts in the era of ObamaCare.

UnitedHealth update removes upside source for Natera, says Piper Jaffray
UnitedHealth (UNH) updated its non-invasive prenatal testing medical policy, continuing to only cover the test in high risk women, Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk tells investors in a research note. The analyst says that while his estimates for Natera are unchanged, UnitedHealth's decision does remove one of the potential sources of 2018 upside for the shares. Aetna (AET) is the other large payer not covering average risk non-invasive prenatal testing, and an update from the insurer is likely in Mayor June, Quirk writes. He keeps an Overweight rating on Natera shares.

Leerink views Department of Labor guidance as positive for MCOs
The Department of Labor's guidance yesterday on expanding access to Association health plans could be negative for both acute and behavioral health facilities due to healthcare exchange dis-enrollment into less rich benefit plans, Leerink analyst Ana Gupte tells investors in a research note. The news, however, is positive for large commercial group employer focused managed care organizations such as UnitedHealth (UNH), Anthem (ANTM), Aetna (AET) and Cigna (CI), with limited to no downside for Centene (CNC) and Molina Healthcare (MOH), given their focus on low income exchange members, the analyst adds. She believes WellCare (WCG) will not be impacted. Gupte expects the level of coverage per insured life to deteriorate with the Department of Labor's order as "skinnier and short term health plans that partly circumvent the ten mandated Essential Health Benefits from the Affordable Care Act further reduce utilization."
