San Francisco Chronicle

Humana Inc. reported a 21 percent upswing in second-quarter profit Monday as the health insurer’s latest strong performance in its vast government segment, led by its growing Medicare Advantage business, was backed by a big improvement in its commercial sector.

Based on solid first-half results, the Louisville-based company raised its net income-per-share expectations for the full year to a range of $5.65 to $5.75, compared to a prior range of $5.55 to $5.65.
