    Aetna (AET) informs California's insurance regulator that as of the end of 2013 the company will no longer offer individual health policies in the state. AET will still cover employers and Medicare beneficiaries and says only 49K out of 1.5M policyholders in California will be affected.

    UnitedHealth (UNH) CEO Stephen Hemsley indicates the company will offer plans on around 12 of the online exchanges opening this fall, down from original estimates of up to 24. UNH's approach reflects an industry-wide concern that "pent-up appetites" for health coverage among the sick will invariably mean the first customers are the costliest, leading companies like Cigna (CI), Aetna (AET) and UNH to take a "wait and see" approach. (Previous: UNH chief cautious on exchanges)

    More on Aetna's (AET) Q1: Although rising expenses offset higher revenues, AET's operating expense ratio fell and memberships grew for the fourth straight quarter as Medicare business was strong.

    The big surge in health care stocks earlier this month just prior to the government's decision on Medicare Advantage rates may have been due to an email to sent by a former top congressional aide who now happens to be an outside lobbyist for Humana (HUM -1.9%). The email, which is now subject to an SEC probe, was sent to a Washington investment-research firm and circulated to clients just minutes before the close of trading, saying that "credible sources" had told them a decision had been made to restore the payments.

    The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, after originally calling for reducing Medicare Advantage payments in February, seem to have reversed course, now projecting that combined growth in Medicare Advantage rates and fee-for-service rates will be 3.3%. Though it's unclear precisely what that may mean for health insurers, the markets are taking it as a positive: HUM +9%, AET +2.3%, WCG +4.1%, UNH +4% AH.
