Health insurer Humana reports 21 percent drop in first-quarter net income
By The Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) ' Humana Inc. says its first-quarter net income fell 21 percent as the health insurer's retail and employer group segments had lower profit as it paid out more in claims than a year ago.

But Humana said Monday that its individual Medicare Advantage membership grew by 15 percent in the three-month period.

And the Louisville-based company raised its full-year earnings forecast.

For the three months ended March 31, Humana earned $248 million, or $1.49 per share. That's compared to $315 million, or $1.86 per share, in the same period last year.

Revenue rose 11 percent to $10.2 billion.

Wall Street analysts had expected earnings per share of $1.52 on revenue of $10.14 billion.

Humana's pretax profit in its retail segment fell from $217 million a year ago to $115 million.
