Modern Healthcare

Humana may exit some individual exchange states in an effort to stop losses tied to the new Affordable Care Act policies, the insurer said Wednesday. Humana also continues to reel after losing a large Medicare Advantage employer account. Those factors and others forced the first-quarter profit at the Louisville, Ky.-based insurer to fall 46% to $234 million.Humana did not lay out exact plans for its ACA products other than saying it likely will raise ACA premiums heavily and ditch some on- and off-exchange policies in “certain statewide” markets.
