LHC Group, LifePoint Health announce further expansion of JV

LHC Group and LifePoint Health announced a further expansion of their joint venture, or JV, partnership with an agreement to add two additional locations - a home health provider and a hospice provider - in Bryant, Ark., that are associated with LifePoint's Saline Memorial Hospital. It is anticipated that this agreement will be finalized on Jan. 1, 2020, subject to customary closing conditions. LHC Group expects approximately $5.4 million in annualized revenue from this transaction. The partnership also announced that it has finalized previously announced additions of CMH Home Health Care (Wilmington, Ohio), Casa de la Paz Hospice (Sierra Vista, Ariz.), and St. Joseph Family Hospice (Lewiston, Idaho). With the transaction completed, LHC Group has assumed management responsibility of the agencies, which will continue to operate from their current locations and under the same names. Once the transaction announced today is finalized, LHC Group expects approximately $9 million in annualized revenue from these additions to the joint venture and anticipates that it will not materially affect its 2019 diluted EPS.

Buy
LHC Group initiated with a Buy at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Justin Bowers started LHC Group with a Buy rating and $145 price target as part of his broader research note into the Post-Acute sector in the Healthcare Facilities industry, saying the fundamentals of the public home health pure-plays are attractive despite payment reform beginning in 2020. The analyst also cites the company's "differentiated JV model" helping it sustain an above-average organic top line growth as well as its "seasoned" management team with a track record in navigating payment and regulatory reform.

Home health 2020 rate final rule positive for providers, says William Blair
The fiscal 2020 Medicare payment and policy final rule for home health agencies was published last night, William Blair analyst Matt Larew tells investors in a research note. The "behavioral adjustment" remained in the final rule as expected, and technically increased from 8.01% to 8.39%, says the analyst. However, given the magnitude of changes that the Patient-Driven Groupings Model system brings for 2020, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid now believes that it will take providers longer to adopt the "assumed behaviors," adds the analyst. The net outcome is that the behavioral adjustment for 2020 has decreased to 4.36% in the final rule from 8.01% in the proposed rule, says Larew. He believes this is a positive outcome for providers that should push 2020 estimates higher. The analyst has Outperform ratings on Addus HomeCare (ADUS), Amedisys (AMED), Encompass Health (EHC) and LHC Group (LHCG).

Buy
LHC Group price target raised to $160 from $145 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst David MacDonald raised his price target on LHC Group to $160 and kept his Buy rating after his "upbeat" meetings with its management. The analyst says the discussion focused on the company's "strong core trends, attractive organic volumes, and growth opportunities on several fronts". MacDonald adds that the high "financial flexibility" of LHC Group offers an opportunity for an accelerated market share gain.
