Healthcare stocks decrease following disappointment in Medicare Advantage rates

The healthcare industry is facing pressure on Tuesday due to the lower-than-expected Medicare Advantage plan payments for 2025. TD Cowen Senior Equity Research Analyst, Gary Taylor, explains the implications of this situation in an interview with Yahoo Finance Live.

According to Taylor, the potential fallout from this decision could lead to healthcare businesses reducing the benefits they offer to seniors next year. This could ultimately improve their margins and drive higher earnings growth in the industry.

Taylor describes this as an “annual political dance” between the industry and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). When a proposed rule, like the 2025 Medicare Advantage (MA) proposed rule, is released, the industry typically lobbies for higher proposed rates. However, this time, CMS did not make any adjustments to the rates in the final notice.
