Aetna pulling back from ObamaCare in blow to health law

In a blow to the healthcare law, Aetna — one of the largest health insurers in the country — announced Monday that it will significantly scale back its presence on the ObamaCare marketplaces next yearThe move comes as a range of insurers have complained of financial losses on the ObamaCare marketplaces.

The company said it will scale back from participating in 15 states this year to just four states in 2017.

“As a strong supporter of public exchanges as a means to meet the needs of the uninsured, we regret having to make this decision,” Aetna CEO Mark Bertolini said in a statement, citing a loss of $200 million in the second quarter.

The Obama administration argued the move is not a sign that the ObamaCare marketplaces are in trouble.

“Aetna’s decision to alter its Marketplace participation does not change the fundamental fact that the Health Insurance Marketplace will continue to bring quality coverage to millions of Americans next year and every year after that,” said the administration’s ObamaCare marketplace CEO, Kevin Counihan.
The move comes on the heels of pullbacks from other major insurers, including UnitedHealthcare and Humana.

Large-Employer Health Benefit Costs Expected to Increase: NBGH Study

Health benefit costs for large employers are expected to increase by less than health insurance premiums in other market sectors, but still above the rate of inflation and the rate of growth for employee wages.

The cost of employee healthcare benefits is expected to increase by 6 percent in 2017, just as it has the previous two years, although companies making changes to their plans are looking to keep growth at 5 percent, according to a recent National Business Group on Health (NBGH) survey of 133 large companies with a combined 7.2 million U.S. employees.

Those employees will be looking at higher premium costs along with higher copays and deductibles, but companies are looking to control costs via innovations such as directing employees to designated centers of excellence for certain procedures, working with accountable care organizations (ACOs) to better coordinate care, and promoting wellness through health coaching and other means.

News reports have focused on requests for premium rate increases of well into double digits for individual plans on the government-run health insurance marketplace. A Kaiser Family Foundation study projects an average increase of 9 percent for what is typically consumers’ most common choice in a given region: the second-lowest-cost silver-level plans.

Against that backdrop, […]
