Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
Will 2013 bring the same strong earnings that health plans enjoyed in 2012? What will be the impact of exchanges and other elements of reform? What does growing pressure for a major overhaul of both Medicare and Medicaid mean for plans? What’s ahead for medical costs, medical loss ratio rebates and more? In a Jan. 17 webinar, “Wall Street’s 2013 Outlook for Health Plans: Where Is the Sector Heading … and Why?” three top health industry securities and financial analysts will discuss the specifics of what Wall Street expects from health plans in 2013 and how business strategies for the new year should be adjusted accordingly.
In 60 minutes of expert presentations from Carl McDonald, a director and senior analyst covering the managed care industry at Citi Investment Research and Analysis, Joseph Marinucci, a director in the Insurance Ratings group at Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services, and Matthew Coffina, CFA, a senior equity analyst with Morningstar, Inc., and a concluding question-and-answer session, webinar attendees can expect answers to the following questions:
Which factors will influence growth and profitability the most?
- Which plans are likely to achieve the best enrollment growth and investment results?
- Which trends should be featured in business planning for 2013?
- What would major overhauls of Medicare and Medicaid mean for market share and profitability?
- What will be the impact on plans of the increasing movement toward plan-provider integration and plan consolidation?
- Which companies may be most vulnerable to layoffs, lower investment results, growing medical costs and problems raising capital?
- How will company performance and profitability be impacted as health plans prepare for health insurance exchanges and other reform-related initiatives? What will the shift toward defined contribution mean for the bottom line of health plans? What utilization trends will be seen in 2013, based on varying projections for economic recovery?
- Will there be more or less M&A activity in 2013 than in 2012?
- Which insurers are best-positioned to boost profits via lower administrative costs?
