10:08 EDTHUM, AET, WLP, UNHUnitedHealth retreats after Citi cuts rating on shares
Shares of health insurer UnitedHealth (UNH) are dropping slightly in an advancing market after Citigroup downgraded the stock in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: United Health's stock doesn't justify a Buy rating at current levels, Citigroup analyst Carl McDonald wrote. The company has limited opportunities to increase its profits this year and its clients may utilize more health services, McDonald contends. Additionally, UnitedHealth spent a greater percentage of its revenues from Medicaid on medical expenses in the fourth quarter versus the previous quarter, the analyst noted. McDonald downgraded UnitedHealth to Neutral from Buy, but increased his price target on the stock to $79 from $77. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, UnitedHealth fell about 1% to $78.67. Other health insurers also declined, with Aetna (AET) giving back 0.5% to $71.25, Humana (HUM) losing 0.5% to $109.15, and WellPoint (WLP) declining 0.4% to $96.06.

17:40 EDTAETAetna customers can switch coverage after mistake, Bloomberg says
Aetna is being investigated by the U.S. for misleading elderly and disabled people about which pharmacies would fill prescriptions in Medicare drug plans the health insurer sold them, says Bloomberg. According to the Bloomberg report, customers will be able to quit their coverage and choose a new plan this year as a result. Raymond Thorn, a spokesman for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said Aetna may be fined or prohibited from enrolling new Medicare customers if the agency determines it intentionally misled Medicare patients, added Bloomberg.
