07:41 EDTAET, CNCAetna Centene to get boost from prior period development, says Wells Fargo
After reviewing managed care companies' reserves, Wells Fargo believes that Aetna (AET) and Centene (CNC) could get a "fairly significant" EPS boost in 2014 from higher favorable prior period development, or PPD. At the very least, higher PPD should cushion Aetna and Centene from higher than expected medical costs, added the firm, which keeps Outperform ratings on both stocks.

06:05 EDTAETAetna reports Q3 Health Care business revenue $14B
The 14% increase is due primarily to membership growth in both of Aetna's Government and Commercial businesses, as well as the effects of pricing actions designed to recover the fees and taxes mandated by health care reform. Reports Q3 Group Insurance revenue $621.4M; Reports Q3 Large Case Pensions revenue $86.3M
06:04 EDTAETAetna reports Q3 medical membership totaled 23.6M at September 30, 2014
Sequentially, third-quarter 2014 medical membership increased by 470,000 due to growth in Aetna's Commercial ASC and Government products. Aetna's third-quarter 2014 Commercial MBR increased over the prior year's MBR primarily as a result of medical cost performance in the smaller middle-market business, costs associated with new hepatitis C treatments, and performance in the individual business, which reflects the impact of programs mandated by health care reform in 2014. This result was partially offset by higher premiums driven in part by pricing actions designed to recover the fees and taxes mandated by health care reform. In the third quarter of 2014, we experienced favorable development of prior-period health care cost estimates in each of our core products, primarily attributable to second quarter 2014 performance.

Centene announced that its wholly-owned Louisiana subsidiary, Louisiana Healthcare Connections, has been recommended for a contract award by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, or DHH, to serve its Bayou Health, or Medicaid, beneficiaries. A contract is contingent upon successful negotiations with DHH and approval by the Division of Administration and by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, Regional Office. The new Bayou Health contract is expected to commence in early 1Q15. Under the new contract, Louisiana Healthcare Connections expects to serve 320,000-350,000 Medicaid beneficiaries on an at-risk basis via a network of 10,500 primary care providers and specialists.
