10:57 EDTHUMHumana Medicare Advantage rate view better than expected, says Susquehanna
Susquehanna says Humana's disclosure that it expects the CMS proposed 2015 Medicare Advantage rates to reduce funding by 350-400 basis points in 2015 is in-line with the firm's view and much better than expectations for 600-700 bps of pressure. The firm thinks further rate improvement is probable when the final rule is released in April, but stills believes rate pressure will be a significant challenge to Humana and the industry. Susquehanna has a Neutral rating on shares of Humana.

10:43 EDTHUMAppeals court bars subsidies in health care law
A three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down part of President Obama's healthcare law by siding today with plaintiffs who argued that the law barred the government from giving subsidies to people in states that chose not to set up their own insurance marketplaces. The appeals court stated, "Because we conclude that the ACA unambiguously restricts the section 36B subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges 'established by the State,' we reverse the district court and vacate the IRSís regulation." Twenty-seven states decided against setting up marketplaces, and another nine states partially opted out, according to the Washington Post.
