With the evolution of the Accountable Care Organization ongoing, we decided to look at who is buying what. This week, we researched deals made in the Managed Care sector to see if there were any discernable trends. Only six deals have been made public so far this year, three in Q1:13 and three in Q2:13, there’s not a lot to tell. Three transactions involved managed care companies as targets, two were for physician medical groups and one fell into our “other” category, because it was for a specialty pharmacy company, AcariaHealth. That deal was one of only two that came with disclosed prices, as AcariaHealth was acquired by Centene Corporation (NYSE: CNC) for $152 million. Centene, a multi-line health insurer, already owns pharmacy benefit manager US Script, and this deal expands its specialized pharmacy benefit services for complex diseases such as hepatitis C, hemophilia, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and oncology. And please don’t write in to say we missed the Highmark/West Penn Allegheny Health System deal. We peg deals to the date of announcement, so even though that $1.5 billion deal finally closed this year, it was announced in June 2011. Have a great week.
