Healthcare stocks decrease following disappointment in Medicare Advantage rates

The healthcare industry is facing pressure on Tuesday due to lower-than-expected Medicare Advantage (MA) plan payments for 2025. This was explained by TD Cowen Senior Equity Research Analyst, Gary Taylor, in an interview with Yahoo Finance Live.

Taylor describes the situation as an “annual political dance” between the industry and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). When a proposed rule, like the 2025 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.

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.
