Health Net, Inc. Provides Earnings Guidance for the Year 2014 and 2015

Health Net, Inc. announced 2015 annual guidance of at least $2.55 for GAAP earnings per diluted share and at least $3.15 per diluted share for the combined Western Region Operations (Western Region) and Government Contracts segments. The EPS guidance for the combined segments would represent a 40% increase compared with the company’s existing guidance for the full year of 2014. The company expects total consolidated revenue of approximately $17.4 billion, an increase of approximately 22.5%. The tax rate for the combined segments is expected to increase by 390 basis points, primarily due to the higher, non-deductible health insurer fee. GAAP tax rate is expected to be 57.4%. The company announced earnings guidance for the fiscal year 2014. For the year, the company expects total consolidated revenues of $14.2 billion. GAAP tax rate is expected to be 28.0%. GAAP earnings per diluted share is expected to be at least $1.95.

Health Net Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Year 2014

Health Net reaffirmed its earnings guidance for the fiscal year 2014. The company continues to expect GAAP earnings per diluted share to be at least $1.95, which it had previously lowered from $3 per share due to the impact of incurred and expected costs related to its master services agreement with Cognizant Technology (CTSH).

Health Net Inks Bigger Deal with Cognizant

Health Net Inc. inked a seven-year deal with Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp. on Nov. 3, but employment fallout - if there is any - won't be known for months. The insurer has a workforce of roughly 2,300 in Rancho Cordova. About 800 work for Health Net's federal services division and will not be affected by the deal. Impact on the 1,500 other local Health Net employees remains unclear. Health Net has worked with Cognizant since at least 2008, but the new deal is a master services agreement that includes consulting, technology and administrative services. This means claims management, membership and benefits configuration, customer call center services, information technology and quality assurance services will shift to Cognizant. So will appeals and grievance services and medical management support.
