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.
