08:10 EDTMGLNMagellan Health says Louisiana looking to reduce term of contract
Magellan Health currently has a contract with the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals to manage behavioral health care for Medicaid recipients and other beneficiaries through the Louisiana Behavioral Health Partnership. The current contract, which generates annual revenue of approximately $150M, is currently scheduled to expire on February 28, 2015. The company disclosed last night that it submitted a proposal pursuant to a request for proposals issued by the Louisiana Department for a new expanded contract including the management of behavioral health care and other new services for Medicaid and other beneficiaries with a term ending on December 31, 2016. The Louisiana Department recently notified Magellan that it was the successful bidder and that it intends to recommend that the company be awarded the New contract. At a subsequent meeting, Magellan said the Louisiana Department informed the company that it has decided that the term of the new contract will be for a shortened term expiring on November 30, 2015 instead of December 31, 2016, after which the behavioral health care and other services to Medicaid and other beneficiaries will be transitioned to the general Medicaid managed care plans in Louisiana. Magellan informed the Louisiana Department that it is not practicable for the company to accept a shortened term on the new contract. It added it and the Louisiana Department are "currently discussing reducing the scope of services contained in the RFP to be rendered under the New Contract such that they are comparable to the services rendered by the Company under the Current Contract, with a reduced term ending November 30, 2015." Magellan said it cannot predict whether it will reach an agreement with the Louisiana Department. It added, "Accordingly, there is no assurance that the Company and the Louisiana Department will be able to reach an agreement on the New Contract. In the event agreement is not reached on the New Contract, the Current Contract would expire on February 28, 2015."

08:58 EDTAET, HUM, MOH, WLP, CI, CNCManaged Care earnings risk low from King vs. Burwell, says Leerink
Leerink believes the Supreme Court decision to the King vs. Burwell case carries low earnings risk for Managed Care companies. The case to determine the legality of Exchange subsidies administered by the Federal Government carries less than 2% and 3% of earnings risk for 2014 and 2015 estimates, respectively, Leerink believes. The firm says Humana (HUM) and Cigna (CI) are currently losing money on Exchanges, and thus could benefit from any Federal Exchange membership loss. Leerink lists Aetna (AET), Centene (CNC), WellPoint (WLP) and Molina Healthcare (MOH) as being most impacted.
