A lot of people are buying Anthem plans, but the company is still holding on to the reinsurance and reinsurance money it made on its massive health insurance merger with Aetna.
The two companies merged in January, with AETNA paying Anthem about $1 billion for reinsurance as part of the deal.
Anthem is still selling the reins, but has reduced the amount of that money in its 2017 plan, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Anthem still plans to keep a large chunk of the money it has received in reinsurance on hand for its next round of investments, but is likely to be trimming it down a bit in the next round.
In 2018, Anthem plans to buy $6.3 billion in Aetanbins for about $3 billion.
It has about $8 billion in other Aetaniins that are worth about $500 million, according a company filing with regulators.
That money is still available for Anthem to sell.
But the insurer is expected to reduce that remaining amount in 2019, after Aetahnin bought a majority stake in Anthem.
