11:32 EDTTHC, HNTHealth Net terminates agreements with six Tenet Healthcare hospitals
Health Net (HNT) announced that its subsidiaries exercised their contractual option to terminate agreements with all six of Tenet Healthcare’s (THC) Southern California hospitals. The terminations were effective midnight on Dec. 21. Health Net and Tenet Healthcare were nearing the end of a three-year contract. Health Net said it believes Tenet’s reimbursement should be in line with the medical consumer price index, which currently averages more than 3%, and that reimbursement for state- and federally funded programs like Medi-Cal needs to be consistent with the funding for those programs. In recent discussions for a new contract, Health Net and Tenet have been unsuccessful in reaching agreement on reimbursement amounts.

07:33 EDTHNTJefferies sees low probability of WellCare, Centene buyouts
After running several acquisition scenarios for the Managed Care space, Jefferies says potential takeovers of WellCare (WCG) and Centene (CNC) are "hard to justify." The firm estimates acquirers will only be able to generate 1%-3% accretion from buying either company at a 20% premium to current share prices. The deal that makes the most financial sense is Aetna (AET) buying Cigna (CI), Jefferies says today in a note to investors. Also financially attractive would be a buyout of Humana (HUM) by either Anthem (ANTM) or Aetna, the firm adds. After analyzing the Managed Care space, it upgraded this morning shares of UnitedHealth (UNH) to Buy from Hold with a $141 price target. Jefferies also has Buy ratings on Aetna, Anthem, Health Net (HNT) and Molina Healthcare (MOH).
