By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Managed Health Care industry with the lowest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.

Anthem Inc ranks lowest with a a P/E ratio of 16.64. Following is Aetna Inc with a a P/E ratio of 18.72. Cigna Corp ranks third lowest with a a P/E ratio of 20.50.
