08:58 EDTMOH, AET, CNC, WLP, CI, HUMManaged 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.
