Strong ’19 AEP Spells Earnings Growth for MAOs This Year

The majority of publicly traded insurers reporting fourth-quarter and full-year 2019 earnings over the last month identified government business as a significant earnings contributor, with momentum from the recent Medicare Advantage open enrollment period carrying that growth into 2020.

Reporting its first full year of earnings with Aetna Inc., CVS Health Corp. on Feb. 12 said that acquisition was the main driver of consolidated growth of 32% to nearly $256.8 billion. Total revenues in the company’s Health Care Benefits segment continued to benefit from strong membership in government products, said Eva Boratto, CVS Health chief financial officer, during a conference call to discuss recent earnings.
