Clover Health (Nasdaq: CLOV) ("Clover" or the "Company"), a next-generation healthcare company focused on improving health outcomes for America's seniors, today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2021. Management will host a conference call today at 5:00 p.m. ET to discuss its operating results and other business highlights.

"Clover took another step in its journey to improve every life with the launch of Direct Contracting this past quarter. This milestone more than doubled our revenue and nearly doubled lives under Clover Assistant management," said Clover Health CEO Vivek Garipalli. "We have ambitious goals to maintain an aggressive growth trajectory while pursuing our mission to improve every life by making great healthcare available and affordable to all American seniors regardless of health, wealth, or economic status. We’re proud of what we’ve already achieved, and look forward to continued progress in the second half of the year."

Andrew Toy, President and CTO of Clover Health added, "The Clover Assistant continues to be a key differentiator which underpins our unique model. The Clover Assistant has approximately 95,000 lives under management and is on pace to manage over $1 billion of annualized revenue. Most importantly, we believe the Clover Assistant drives better outcomes for our members. Additionally, our Non-GAAP Normalized MA MCR for returning MA members attributed to a provider live on Clover Assistant was 720 bps lower than members attributed to non-CA providers. Our top six markets by membership, in which over 74% of our MA members received a CA visit in 2020, had a Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP) of 86.6% in first quarter 2021. We continue to deeply invest in the Clover Assistant platform, and our product and technology teams are constantly working to launch exciting new features such as deeper EHR integrations as well as supporting specialized services like diabetes management."

Management Commentary on Financial Highlights

"Second quarter revenue grew 140% year-over-year due primarily to the launch of Direct Contracting. Clover is on a $1.6 billion annual revenue run rate based on the second quarter results," said Joe Wagner, Clover Health CFO. "We believe our Normalized MA MCR (non-GAAP), which adjusts for COVID-related impacts, demonstrates stability in this measure year-over-year, and we continue to see positive results from returning members and those who see Clover Assistant providers. On a GAAP basis, similar to other MA plans, we saw an elevated MA MCR from increased utilization, much of which we believe was deferred in prior periods due to COVID in our New Jersey/New York markets. In contrast, in the second quarter of 2020, Clover reported a GAAP MCR of 70.1% due to a significant decrease in utilization. Neither our results in this quarter nor in the second quarter of 2020 represent the underlying fundamentals of our business. Over time we expect these extraordinary costs to trend down, consistent with our Normalized (non-GAAP) calculations.'

Second Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue was $412.5 million in second quarter 2021, a 139.7% increase compared to $172.1 million in second quarter 2020. This consisted of $195.4 million in Medicare Advantage premiums and $216.4 million in Direct Contracting revenue.
  • Total lives under Clover management at quarter end was approximately 129,000, an increase of 126.3% compared to June 30, 2020. Medicare Advantage membership and Direct Contracting lives were 66,566 and 62,025, respectively, as of June 30, 2021.
  • Our GAAP Medicare Advantage MCR for the quarter was 111.0%, compared to 70.1% for Q2 2020. Normalized Medicare Advantage MCR (Non-GAAP), which excludes the estimated net effect of COVID-19 and any changes to our estimate of prior period revenue and medical costs, was 97.0% for the quarter, as compared to 97.5% for Q2 2020. The year-over-year increase in GAAP Medicare Advantage MCR was primarily driven by increases in direct expenses for caring for members impacted by COVID-19 and increased utilization from outpatient deferred care. Please see "Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP) and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP)" below for more details on our GAAP MA MCR and our Non-GAAP Normalized MA MCR.
  • Our final financial results for Direct Contracting will not be finalized until the CMS reconciliation for year one occurs. Direct Contracting GAAP net medical claims incurred were $241.9 million. We believe Direct Contracting net medical claims incurred were impacted similarly to Medicare Advantage by COVID-19; however, due to the newness of the program, we are not providing a "normalized" estimate of net medical claims incurred. We expect the financial performance of Direct Contracting for the remainder of the year to improve.
  • Salaries and benefits plus General and administrative expenses for the quarter were $107.8 million compared to $40.7 million for the second quarter of 2020, an increase of $67.1 million. This increase related primarily to an increase in stock-based compensation expense, which is a non-cash expense.
  • Premium deficiency reserve expense was $27.9 million for the second quarter, in anticipation of a reserve deemed necessary for the remainder of 2021. This compared to a $11.3 million benefit in second quarter 2020.
  • GAAP net (loss) income for the quarter was $(317.6) million compared to net income of $5.4 million for the second quarter of 2020. Our second quarter 2021 results were impacted by a non-cash loss of $134.5 million relating to the change in the fair value of our public and private placement warrants.
  • Adjusted EBITDA loss (Non-GAAP) for the quarter was $(138.7) million, and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA loss (Non-GAAP), which reflects the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was $(58.0) million.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $630.3 million as of June 30, 2021.

Clover Assistant Highlights

  • Lives under Clover Assistant management grew 229% year-over-year to approximately 95,000.
  • Clover Assistant is on track to manage over $1 billion in annualized revenue.
  • Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP) for returning members attributed to a provider live on Clover Assistant was 720 bps lower than members attributed to a non-CA provider during H1 2021. The incurred MA MCR differential, which the Company has reported historically, was 1,710 basis points, in H1 2021.
  • In first quarter 2021, for which almost all claims have been received, the Clover Assistant demonstrated strong performance. We believe the following is illustrative of the impact that greater Clover Assistant penetration can have on our Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP), and that over time, as Clover Assistant coverage matures in our newer markets, our overall plan performance will benefit:
    • Overall MA Membership (100% of total MA membership): 62% of members received a Clover Assistant visit in 2020. Normalized MCR in Q1 2021 was 91.7%.
    • In our top six counties by enrollment (59% of total MA membership): 74% of these members received a Clover Assistant visit in 2020. Normalized MCR in Q1 2021 was 86.6%.
    • In the remaining counties (41% of total MA membership): 39% of these members received a Clover Assistant visit in 2020. Normalized MCR in Q1 2021 was 100.4%.

Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP) and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP)

In second quarter 2021, we updated our definitions of Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP) and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP). Previously, the Company was subtracting from or adding to, as applicable, its "normalized" measures, direct COVID-related costs, including utilization deferred in prior periods, an estimate of the net effect of care deferred or eliminated by the COVID-19 environment, and an estimate of other adjustments in the current period which relate to prior period dates of service. The Company is now also reflecting in these "normalized" measures an estimate of the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the Company’s premium revenue, which management believes has been impacted by lower risk adjustment scores in 2021 due to reduced utilization and less thorough and accurate documentation of our members’ clinical utilization in 2020 due to the COVID-19 environment. The Company has also updated the way it estimates care that was deferred from prior periods due to the COVID-19 pandemic and ultimately realized in the current period and now also adjusts its Normalized Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP) calculations for premium deficiency reserve expense and Direct Contracting gross profit or loss. Management believes that these updated definitions better reflect the Company’s underlying fundamentals and provide a more meaningful view of the Company’s results on a hypothetical "COVID-less" basis. The Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP) and Normalized Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP) calculations represent management’s current estimates and assumptions regarding the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s financial results, including our MCR, and remain subject to significant uncertainties, including the ultimate severity, magnitude and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the development of new COVID-19 variants, and the potential for further deferrals of elective or preventive care due to additional COVID-19 outbreaks and stay-at-home orders and the resulting impact on future medical complications, future medical costs and/or a reduction in risk adjustments and benchmarks against which future CMS bids will be assessed. For additional information, see the definitions of "Normalized Adjusted EBITDA" and "Normalized MA MCR" in Appendix A.

Applying this new methodology for calculating our Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP), in the second quarter, our Normalized MA MCR was 97.0%, similar to the full-year 2020 Normalized MA MCR and higher than our Q1 2021 Normalized MA MCR, primarily due to seasonal factors.

Management Long-Term View

Management continues to believe there is a long-term opportunity to improve our Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP), driven by potential improvements in internal processes, including Utilization Management process changes, delay in recognizing recoveries, and improved Star ratings. We believe improvements relating to these factors could drive significant improvement in our Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP), and this excludes any potential future additional impact from the Clover Assistant, which we believe is in the early innings of its potential. There can be no assurance that we will be able to improve our Star ratings or that the other assumptions we make will be achieved for the reasons discussed in the Risk Factors section of our 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K, as supplemented by the Risk Factors included in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

We have attempted to illustrate this potential improvement in Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP) in the table below.

Financial Outlook

For full year 2021, Clover Health is providing the following guidance and commentary:

  • Total revenues are expected to be in the range of $1.4 billion to $1.5 billion. This reflects MA revenue of $760 million to $790 million and Medicare Direct Contracting revenue of $650 million to $700 million.
  • Medicare Advantage membership is expected to be in the range of 68,000 - 70,000 by December 31, 2021, a growth rate of 17% - 21% as compared to year end 2020.
  • For the Medicare Direct Contracting program, the Company expects the number of aligned beneficiaries to remain roughly flat for the remainder of 2021. Further, the Company expects a significant increase in total aligned beneficiaries on January 1, 2022 when claims aligned beneficiaries for 2022 become active.
  • Normalized MCR (Non-GAAP)(1) for Medicare Advantage is expected to be in the range of 94% - 97%.
  • Adjusted Operating Expenses (Non-GAAP)(1), which we define as Salaries and benefits plus General and administrative expenses less stock-based compensation expense, is expected to be between $250 and $270 million.
  • Adjusted Operating Expenses (Non-GAAP) as a percentage of revenue(1) is expected to be 16% in the second half of 2021 compared to 21% in the first half of 2021 and 22% in full year 2020.
  • Normalized Adjusted EBITDA loss (Non-GAAP)(1) is expected to be in the range of $(250) - $(210) million. This excludes gross profit or loss from Direct Contracting, reflecting the fact that we do not yet have sufficient claims data to prepare a “normalized” result for the Direct Contracting segment.

(1) Reconciliations of projected Adjusted Operating Expenses (Non-GAAP) to projected Salaries and benefits plus General and administrative expenses, and Adjusted Operating Expenses (non-GAAP) to projected Salaries and benefits plus General and administrative expenses, are not provided because stock-based compensation expense, which is excluded from Adjusted Operating Expenses (Non-GAAP), cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time without unreasonable efforts. A reconciliation of projected Normalized MCR (Non-GAAP) to GAAP MCR, on an MA or Direct Contracting basis, is not provided because COVID-related costs, which are excluded from the applicable Normalized MCR (Non-GAAP) financial measure, cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time without unreasonable efforts. A reconciliation of projected Normalized Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP) to net loss is not provided because certain items that are excluded from Normalized Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP), including changes in the fair value of the Company’s warrant liability, stock-based compensation expense, and COVID-related costs, cannot be reasonably calculated or predicted at this time without unreasonable efforts. Additional information about the Company's non-GAAP financial measures can be found under the caption “About Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below and in Appendix A.

About Clover Health

Clover Health (Nasdaq: CLOV) is a next-generation risk-bearing organization aiming to achieve health equity for all Americans. While our mission is to improve every life, we particularly focus on seniors who have historically lacked access to affordable high quality healthcare.

We aim to provide great care, in a sustainable way, by having a business model built around improving medical outcomes while lowering avoidable costs. We do this while taking a holistic approach to understanding the health needs and social risk factors of those under our care. This strategy is underpinned by the company’s proprietary software platform, the Clover Assistant, which is designed to aggregate patient data from across the health ecosystem to support clinical decision-making by providing physicians with real-time, personalized recommendations at the point of care.

Making care more accessible is at the heart of our business, and we believe patients should have the freedom to choose their doctors. We offer two models of care: affordable Medicare Advantage plans with extensive benefits; and care coordination for Original Medicare beneficiaries through Direct Contracting. For both programs, we provide primary care physicians with the Clover Assistant and also make comprehensive home-based care available via the Clover Home Care program.

With its corporate headquarters in Nashville, Clover’s workforce is distributed around the U.S. and also includes a team of world-class technologists based in Hong Kong. The company manages care for Medicare beneficiaries in eleven states, including Arizona, Georgia, Kansas, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Vermont.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Other Items

Non-GAAP Adjustments

We believe it is useful to investors for our presentation within this document on a non-GAAP basis to exclude the below items. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of these amounts provides useful measures for period-to-period comparisons of our business. These key measures are used by our management and the board of directors to understand and evaluate our operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget and to develop short and long-term operating plans.

Amortization of notes and securities discount - We report non-convertible notes and convertible securities at carrying value, net of discount. We account for convertible securities in accordance with accounting guidance for debt with conversion and other options, after determining whether embedded conversion options should be bifurcated from their host instruments.

Change in fair value of warrants payable - The fair value of warrant liabilities is estimated using a valuation method based on the level of instrument, where the values of various instruments where the values of various instruments are estimated based on an analysis of future values, assuming various future outcomes.

Depreciation and Amortization - Depreciation and amortization consists of all depreciation and amortization expenses associated with our property and equipment. Depreciation includes expenses associated with property and equipment. Amortization includes expenses associated with leasehold improvements.

Delay in Recognizing Recoveries – As a result of implementation delays, we have been unable to accrue for the full amount of expected recoveries related to improper claims payments. We believe that we will ultimately recover these payments and have excluded the impact of the delay from our calculation of the H1 2021 Illustrative Long-Term Pro Forma MA MCR (Non-GAAP) chart provided in the press release.

Direct COVID related costs – This consists of our estimate of costs associated with COVID-19 related care and testing.

Excess (Reduced) Utilization due to COVID – This consists of (1) our estimate of non-COVID-19 related services that were deferred in prior periods and ultimately realized in the current period, and (2) our estimate of utilization related to conditions that were exacerbated by a lack of diagnoses and treatment in prior periods due to the pandemic, for which we have incurred higher cost of treatment in the current period. The estimated cost of these services in the current period is excluded from our Normalized MA MCR (Non-GAAP).

Premium deficiency reserve expense (benefit) – This consists of a reserve established to the extent that the sum of expected future costs, claim adjustment expenses, and maintenance costs exceeds related future premiums. We assess the profitability of our contracts with CMS to identify those contracts where current operating results or forecasts indicate probable future losses. Premium deficiency reserve expense (benefit) is recognized in the period in which the losses are identified.

Direct contracting gross loss adjustment – This consists of the elimination of gross loss recognized for the Direct Contracting segment during the current period. We do not yet have sufficient claims data to provide a normalized result for this segment and therefore have excluded this amount in the current period for purposes of calculating Normalized Adjusted EBITDA (Non-GAAP).

Gain on Derivative - This consists of values determined after we have evaluated the embedded features of our convertible securities by applying derivative accounting guidance. Derivatives embedded within non-derivative instruments, such as convertible securities, are bifurcated from the host instrument when the embedded derivative is not clearly and closely related to the host instrument.

Interest Expense - Interest expense consists mostly of interest expense associated with previously outstanding non-convertible notes under our term loan facility. All remaining principal and interest has been voluntarily paid and the facility has been terminated as of June 29, 2021.

Prior Period Development – This consists of our estimate of adjustments in the current period which relate to prior period dates of service. We exclude these amounts from Normalized MA MCR to isolate our estimate of current period performance.

Pro Forma for Stars Adjustment – This consists of our estimate of the impact to GAAP MA MCR for a higher Star plan rating. Currently, Clover has a 3 Star plan rating. In the H1 2021 Illustrative Long-Term Pro Forma MA MCR (Non-GAAP) chart provided in the press release, we have presented the pro forma impact of this estimate for illustrative purposes and note that Clover may choose to use incremental revenue related to Stars improvement to drive more benefits for members.

Stock Based Compensation Expense - This consists of expenses for stock-based payment awards granted to employees and non-employees.

UM (Utilization Management) Process Changes – This consists of our estimate of the impact of process deterioration in our utilization management program during the first and second quarter of 2021. As of June 2021, the issues that caused the deterioration have been identified and resolved. Therefore, we have excluded the impact of the process deterioration from our H1 2021 Illustrative Long-Term Pro Forma MA MCR (Non-GAAP) chart provided in the press release.

Unrealized 2020 Risk Adjustment – This consists of our estimate of COVID-19’s impact on member risk scores in 2021. Reduced utilization in 2020 due to COVID-19 resulted in fewer diagnoses being made and fewer chronic conditions being treated, which had a negative impact on member risk scores and premium revenue in 2021.

Non-GAAP Definitions

Adjusted EBITDA - A non-GAAP financial measure defined by us as net loss before interest expense, amortization of notes and securities discount, depreciation and amortization, change in fair value of warrants payable, (gain) loss on derivative, and stock-based compensation expense. Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by our management team and the board of directors to understand and evaluate our operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget and to develop short and long-term operating plans. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of the amounts eliminated in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can provide useful measures for period-to-period comparisons of our business. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides investors and others useful information to understand and evaluate our operating results in the same manner as our management and our board of directors.

Adjusted Operating Expenses - A non-GAAP financial measure defined by us as Salaries and benefits plus General and administrative expenses less Stock-based compensation expense. We believe that Adjusted Operating Expenses provides management, investors and others a useful view of our operating spend as it excludes non-cash, stock-based compensation. We believe that Adjusted Operating Expenses as a Percentage of Revenue is useful to management, investors, and others because it allows us to measure our operational leverage as revenue scales.

Normalized Adjusted EBITDA - A non-GAAP financial measure defined by us as net loss before interest expense, amortization of notes and securities discounts, depreciation and amortization, change in fair value of warrants payable, (gain) on derivative, stock-based compensation expense, direct COVID related costs, prior period development, unrealized 2020 risk adjustment, Excess (reduced) utilization due to COVID, premium deficiency reserve expense or benefit, and Direct Contracting gross profit or loss. We believe that Normalized Adjusted EBITDA is a helpful measure for our management team, investors and others to assess the Company’s financial performance and operations without the temporary distortion caused by the COVID pandemic.

Normalized MA MCR - A non-GAAP financial measure that excludes from MA MCR (as defined below) the impact of COVID-19 on medical costs and premium revenue and adjusts for the estimate of prior period divergence from estimates. The impact of COVID-19 on medical costs consists of direct COVID related costs, prior period development, unrealized 2020 risk adjustment, and Excess (reduced) utilization due to COVID, and the impact on premium revenue consists of estimates of COVID-19’s impact on member risk scores. We believe that this metric, which is used by our management team in the operation of the business, is helpful to investors and others in assessing the Company’s financial performance and operations without the temporary distortion caused by the COVID pandemic.
