Health Net Reports Second Quarter 2012 GAAP Net Income Of $124.6 Million, Or $1.48 Per Diluted Share


Cash and investments as of June 30, 2012 were $2.1 billion compared with $1.7 billion as of June 30, 2011.

Reserves for claims and other settlements as of June 30, 2012 were $1.0 billion compared with $900.7 million as of June 30, 2011 and $958.1 million as of March 31, 2012.

Days claims payable (DCP) for the second quarter of 2012 was 39.0 days compared with 38.6 days in the second quarter of 2011 and 37.2 days in the first quarter of 2012.

On an adjusted 1 basis, DCP in the second quarter of 2012 was 54.3 days compared with 52.0 days in the second quarter of 2011 and 53.0 days in the first quarter of 2012.

The company’s debt-to-total capital ratio was 24.1 percent as of June 30, 2012 compared with 26.4 percent as of March 31, 2012 and 28.2 percent as of June 30, 2011.


Operating cash flow was $119.8 million in the second quarter of 2012. The company received an extra monthly Medicaid payment of approximately $102.0 million from the state of California during the second quarter.

“We expect operating cash flow of approximately $10 million for the full-year 2012. This reflects the loss from discontinued operations. However, the cash benefit from the gain on sale associated with the sold Medicare PDP business is reflected in Cash Flow from Investing Activities,” said Joseph Capezza, Health Net’s chief financial officer.


From April 1 through August 1, 2012, Health Net repurchased approximately 1.8 million shares of its common stock for $44.6 million at an average price of $24.77 per share. At August 1, 2012, approximately $355.4 million of authorization under the company’s existing $400 million share repurchase program remained.


The company’s Divested Operations and Services segment includes items related to the run-out of the Northeast business and transition-related revenues and expenses related to the Medicare PDP business that was sold on April 1, 2012. Health Net continues to administer run-out claims and provide certain administrative services for the Northeast business pursuant to claims servicing agreements in place with UnitedHealthcare and its affiliates.
