09:38 EDTCI, HS, MOH, UNH, WCG, AGP, AET, HUM, WLP, CNC, HNTObamacare enrollment total not very relevant, NY Times says
After the White House said yesterday that more than 6M Americans have signed up for health insurance under Obamacare, The New York Times notes that it is not known how many of those who signed up paid their premiums. The total "has nothing to do" with whether the law is working or not, as it doesn't measure whether the premiums are affordable, or whether people like the coverage, the newspaper quoted Drew Altman, president of the Kaiser Family Foundation, as saying. Publicly traded healthcare insurers include AMERIGROUP (AGP), Aetna (AET), Centene (CNC), Cigna (CI), Health Net (HNT), Healthspring (HS), Humana (HUM), Molina Healthcare (MOH), UnitedHealth (UNH), WellCare (WCG) and WellPoint (WLP).

08:58 EDTWLP, MOH, HUM, AET, CNC, CIManaged 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.
