San Francisco Chronicle

Health insurer UnitedHealth Group said Tuesday its second-quarter profit jumped 31 percent as both enrollment and costs came in better than Wall Street expected.

The Minnetonka, Minn., insurer said it earned $1.12 billion, or 99 cents per share, in the three months ended June 30. That’s up from the $859 million, or 73 cents per share, in the same period last year. Revenue grew 7 percent to $23.26 billion.
