Fitch Publishes Updated Sector Credit Factors Report for U.S. Health Insurers

CHICAGO --(Business Wire)--

Link to Fitch Ratings' Report: Health Insurance and Managed Care (U.S.) (Sector Credit Factors)
http://www.fitchratings.com/creditdesk/reports/report_frame.cfm?rpt_id=766788

Fitch Ratings has published an updated sector-specific special report describing the credit factors the agency uses to analyze U.S. health insurers.

The report titled 'Health Insurance and Managed Care (U.S.) Sector Credit Factors,' replaces a previous version published Dec. 18, 2013.

Changes from the previous version are modest and focus on the effect sector-wide and company specific membership growth plays in Fitch's rating assessments. The changes do not affect the ratings levels of Fitch-rated U.S. health insurance and managed care companies.

The updated 'Health Insurance and Managed Care (U.S.) Sector Credit Factors,' special report supplements Fitch's master criteria 'Insurance Rating Methodology'. Both reports are available at www.fitchratings.com' or by clicking on the links below.
