    5 Hot-Running Health Insurance Stocks to Buy

    Many of us are unhappy with our health insurers. Premiums are high. Hospital bills can be large and deductibles for many policyholders are larger than ever. But the world looks good if you own health insurance stocks. There are profits to be made managing government health care programs -- Medicaid, public exchanges, the Children's Health Insurance Program and Medicare. Because despite the confusion over health insurance, government health care expenditures continue to rise. To wit, Medicare spending is projected grow 7.9% annually to 2023 with total expenditures of approximately $1.1 trillion. Meanwhile, Medicaid spending is estimated to grow 5.9% annually to 2023, when it will top $828 billion. Here are five health insurance stocks to buy - all of which have advanced by double digits already in 2018. But don't worry about being late to the party. There's reason to expect more upside in these stocks because they need only to maintain a strategy at which they have proven adept: increase enrollments and contain medical costs.

    Centene Expands Offerings in Health Insurance Marketplaces

    In the latest sign of insurers’ improved fortunes in the Affordable Care Act business, Centene Corp. will start selling ACA plans in four new states next year and add new counties in six others. The announcement by Centene, which said it is already the largest enroller of ACA-plan customers, comes amid growing evidence that the health-law markets are steadying after years of turmoil, despite continued regulatory changes and a major legal challenge.
