|Debt Disclosure [Abstract]|
Debt consists of the following ($ in millions):
In February 2020, the Company issued $2,000 million 3.375% Senior Notes due February 15, 2030 (the 2030 Notes). The Company used the net proceeds from the 2030 Notes to redeem all of its outstanding $1,000 million 6.125% Senior Notes, due February 15, 2024 (the 2024 Notes). The Company recognized a pre-tax loss on extinguishment of approximately $44 million, including the call premium, the write-off of unamortized debt issuance costs and the loss on the termination of the $1,000 million interest rate swap associated with the 2024 Notes. The Company also intended to use remaining proceeds to redeem its $1,000 million 4.75% Senior Notes due May 15, 2022 (the 2022 Notes). However, as a result of the spread of COVID-19 and the resulting disruption and volatility in the global capital markets, the Company has deferred the redemption of the 2022 Notes at this time.
In connection with the WellCare Acquisition, in January 2020, the Company completed an exchange offer for up to $1,200 million of 5.25% Senior Notes due April 1, 2025 and $750 million of 5.375% Senior Notes due August 15, 2026 (collectively, the WellCare Notes) issued by WellCare and issued $1,146 million aggregate principal amount of 5.25% Senior Notes due April 1, 2025 and $747 million aggregate principal amount of 5.375% Senior Notes due August 15, 2026. Additionally, the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, WellCare Health Plans, Inc., assumed the remaining unexchanged WellCare Notes. The WellCare Notes were recorded at the acquisition date fair value of $2,055 million.
Interest Rate Swaps
During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company terminated the interest rate swap agreements associated with the 2022 Notes and $2,200 million 4.75% Senior Notes, due January 15, 2025, (the 2025 Notes). The interest rate swap associated with the 2024 Notes were also terminated in connection with the redemption of those notes as discussed above. In total, the Company terminated three interest rate swap contracts with a notional amount of $2,100 million. The swaps effectively converted $2,100 million of fixed rate notes to floating rates. As a result of the interest rate swap terminations, the Company received $9 million in cash. The corresponding net gain on the 2022 Notes and 2025 Notes is being amortized as a reduction to interest expense over the remaining term of the respective notes.
