Tenet execs say other insurers will fill in for United on ACA exchanges

Executives from major for-profit hospital chain Tenet Healthcare Corp. said this week that they aren't worried about UnitedHealth's decision to exit most Affordable Care Act exchanges in 2017, Reuters reports. Daniel Waldmann, the company's senior vice president of public affairs, said "there are others who will be looking to pick up that UnitedHealth business" on the exchanges, noting that it is expected insurers will make adjustments. CEO Trevor Fetter also added that Tenet has taken steps to ensure it is included in exchange plans' networks, which has helped the company grow its admissions and capitalize on newly insured patients.
