Financial report summary

  • Risks Relating to Our Business
  • If we fail to effectively implement our operational and strategic initiatives, including our Medicare initiatives and our state-based contracts strategy, our business may be materially adversely affected, which is of particular importance given the concentration of our revenues in these products. In addition, there can be no assurances that we will be successful in maintaining or improving our Star ratings in future years.
  • If we fail to properly maintain the integrity of our data, to strategically maintain existing or implement new information systems, or to protect our proprietary rights to our systems, our business may be materially adversely affected.
  • If we are unable to defend our information technology security systems against cybersecurity attacks or prevent other privacy or data security incidents that result in security breaches that disrupt our operations or in the unintended dissemination of sensitive personal information or proprietary or confidential information, we
  • could be exposed to significant regulatory fines or penalties, liability or reputational damage, or experience a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial position, and cash flows.
  • We are involved in various legal actions and governmental and internal investigations, any of which, if resolved unfavorably to us, could result in substantial monetary damages or changes in our business practices. Increased litigation and negative publicity could increase our cost of doing business.
  • As a government contractor, we are exposed to risks that may materially adversely affect our business or our willingness or ability to participate in government health care programs.
  • Our business activities are subject to substantial government regulation. New laws or regulations, or legislative, judicial, or regulatory changes in existing laws or regulations or their manner of application could increase our cost of doing business and may have a material adverse effect on our results of operations (including restricting revenue, enrollment and premium growth in certain products and market segments, restricting our ability to expand into new markets, increasing our medical and operating costs by, among other things, requiring a minimum benefit ratio on insured products, lowering our Medicare payment rates and increasing our expenses associated with assessments); our financial position (including our ability to maintain the value of our goodwill); and our cash flows.
  • Any failure by us to manage acquisitions, divestitures and other significant transactions successfully may have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial position, and cash flows.
  • If we fail to develop and maintain satisfactory relationships with the providers of care to our members, our business may be adversely affected.
  • Our pharmacy business is highly competitive and subject us to regulations and supply chain risks in addition to those we face with our core health benefits businesses.
  • Our ability to obtain funds from certain of our licensed subsidiaries is restricted by state insurance regulations.
  • Downgrades in our debt ratings, should they occur, may adversely affect our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
  • The securities and credit markets may experience volatility and disruption, which may adversely affect our business.
Management Discussion
  • (a)Represents total benefits expense as a percentage of premiums revenue.
  • (b)Represents total operating costs, excluding depreciation and amortization, as a percentage of total revenues less investment income.
  •     Consolidated premiums increased $11.2 billion, or 17.9%, from $62.9 billion for 2019 to $74.2 billion for 2020 primarily due to higher premium revenues from Medicare Advantage and state-based contracts membership growth, higher per member Medicare Advantage premiums, and the receipt of commercial risk corridor receivables previously written off, partially offset by the impact of declining stand-alone PDP and fully-insured group commercial medical membership as more fully described in the detailed segment results discussion that follows.
