2023 Outlook: Analysts Predict Another ‘Stable’ Year for Health Insurers
This year, a variety of headwinds and tailwinds are likely to buffet the health insurance industry, including inflation, a possible recession, the return of Medicaid eligibility checks, potential policy changes in Medicare Advantage, a split Congress, easing COVID costs and more. But the net effect of all those factors is likely to leave the sector on stable footing, analysts tell AIS Health.
“The tailwinds and headwinds change every year — that’s the case again for ’23. Overall, we think it’s balanced; that’s why we have a stable view,” says James Sung, associate director of insurance at S&P Global Ratings.
