14:02 EDTHUM, AMEDAmedisys sinks after warning new deal will generate less revenue
Home health care provider Amedisys (AMED) is tumbling after the company renewed its contract with health insurer Humana (HUM), but predicted that the new deal would generate 50% less revenue than the previous agreement. The new contract may cover fewer markets and Amedisys will be paid on a per visit basis, rather than on an episodic basis as was previously the case, Amedisys reported. Amedisys, which noted that it had previously generated $65M-$70M in revenue from Humana each year, said the new agreement would begin impacting its revenue this quarter. However, the "full impact" of the deal won't be felt until 2013, the home health care provider added. In mid-afternoon trading, Amedisys sank $1.39, or 10.43%, to $11.94.

08:58 EDTHUMManaged 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.
