AmeriHealth New Jersey lost money, but how much?



Cooper Health System, which owns 20 percent of AmeriHealth New Jersey, said its share of the health insurer's 2016 loss was $5.29 million, down sharply from a $9.26 million loss the year before. Based on Cooper's 20 percent stake, that would translate into overall AmeriHealth New Jersey losses of $26.43 million last year and $46.28 million the year before, but the New Jersey insurer's majority owner, Independence Health Group, disputed the magnitude of the losses. … Patricia Dorris Crenny, an accounting instructor at Villanova University, said a possible explanation for the discrepancy would be that Cooper is adding in an accounting expense of some sort, but that is not evident from Cooper's financial statement.
