WellPoint posts 3% profit decline
Los Angeles Times

Health insurance giant WellPoint Inc. said its profit fell 3% in the second quarter partly because of higher-than-expected medical costs for seniors, particularly in Northern California.

The nation’s second-largest insurer by membership said it earned $701.6 million in the three months that ended June 30, down from $722.4 million a year earlier.
