06:50 EDTWCG, MOH, CNC, AGP, AET, CI, HS, HUM, HNT, WLP, UNHConsumers received $9B in refunds from health insurers, The Hill says
Health insurance companies have returned about $9B of premiums to consumers since 2011 as a result of a provision in Obamacare, the government estimated, according to The Hill. Under the provision insurers must spend at least 80%-85% of the premiums they collect on patient care or to improve healthcare quality, the website explained. If the insurers are unable to meet that threshold, they are required to return the difference to insurance holders, The Hill stated. Publicly traded companies in the space 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).

09:31 EDTAETAetna, HHC announce new multi-year network agreement
Aetna and Hartford HealthCare announced a new multi-year network agreement beginning on January 1, 2015, and that the two organizations will offer new value-based, accountable care arrangements in Connecticut beginning next year. Aetna and Hartford HealthCare plan to implement an accountable care agreement for Aetna members beginning in 2015 and to jointly introduce new accountable care products in 2016. The accountable care agreement is designed to improve quality and the overall patient experience, improve access to care, and lower medical costs. Integrated Care Partners will play a critical role in improving how patient care is delivered through the new value-based accountable care relationships that are being defined. In an accountable care agreement, a group of health care providers assumes responsibility for the quality and cost of care for a group of patients. Aetna members in these models receive an enhanced level of coordinated care in addition to the member benefits of their current Aetna plan.
