House Speaker Ryan says plan for ACA repeal and replace to be introduced later this month
House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday that Republicans plan to introduce legislation for the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act after Feb. 20, or President's Day. The House of Representatives' first day back in session is Feb. 27, according to its calendar. The timing is this way because "we're waiting for our scores" from the Congressional Budget Office and the Joint Committee on Taxation, Ryan said. "Pending our drafting issues, we're going to be bringing it out after the... district work period," or the period between Feb. 21 and Feb. 24 during which representatives are supposed to travel home for constituent issues. Ryan did not elaborate during Thursday's press conference about the details of the replacement plan, but his statement comes in contrast with reports from a Philadelphia retreat last month that Republican lawmakers could not agree on the plan's specifics. Ryan's announcement this week comes on the heels of a Humana announcement that the company plans to withdraw from the ACA's exchanges and a Wednesday statement by Aetna Chief Executive Officer Mark Bertolini that the health law was in a "death spiral."

"As an independent company, we will continue to innovate and sharpen our focus on the local healthcare experience of all our members, especially seniors living with chronic conditions," Chief Executive Bruce Broussard said in the announcement.

Cigna terminates Anthem merger deal, seeks nearly $15 billion in restitution
Cigna Corp. disclosed in filing Tuesday that it has terminated the merger deal with Anthem Inc. , six days after a court ruling to enjoin the proposed merger, and about 19 months after the $48 billion merger was announced. Cigna said has filed suit against Anthem, seeking a $1.85 billion reverse termination fee and more than $13 billion in additional damages, which includes the amount of premium Cigna shareholders did not realize. Cigna said it decided to terminate the deal after a district court found that the merger would decrease competition and choices for consumers. Cigna's decision marked the second big healthcare merger that was terminated Tuesday, after Aetna Inc. and Humana Inc. agreed to end their $34 billion merger, also after 19 months. Cigna said Tuesday that it while it was "disappointed" in the merger's failure, it was moving ahead by expanding its stock repurchase program to a total of $3.7 billion. The company said its 2017 outlook for adjusted earnings growth will get a boost from the "significant" capital available for deployment. Cigna's stock was up 0.4% in afternoon trade, while Anthem shares slipped 0.2%. Over the past 12 months, Cigna's stock has gained 12%, Anthem shares have rallied 34% and the S&P 500 has gained 25%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Aetna and Humana stock each drop 2% in heavy volume after federal judge blocks merger
Aetna Inc. shares dropped 2.4% and Humana Inc. shares dropped 2.0% in heavy volume during midday trade Monday after The Wall Street Journal and Reuters reported that a federal judge had blocked their merger on antitrust grounds. The federal judge's Monday decision said the DOJ had successfully argued that the deal could hurt consumers with Medicare Advantage plans, according to the WSJ. The ruling deals a "potentially fatal legal blow" to the deal, the WSJ said. After the Department of Justice sued to block the $34 billion merger last summer, the two health insurers said they would "vigorously" defend the deal and that "the facts do not support the basis for DOJ action." The New York Post reported last week that a federal judge is expected to block another merger between two other large health insurers, Anthem Inc. and Cigna Corp. , and a decision is expected shortly. Aetna shares have risen 8.3% over the last three months, and Humana shares have risen 12.6%, compared with a 5.5% rise in the S&P 500 .
