Modern Healthcare

Anthem reported a 4% increase in third-quarter profit and beat Wall Street forecasts as the number of people the health insurer covers edged slightly higher.

It also boosted its annual profit forecast for the third time this year, saying it now expects adjusted net income of $10.10 to $10.20 per share. That’s up from its July forecast, when it projected adjusted earnings of more than $10 per share, but still below the solid $10.20 per share that Wall Street is looking for, according to a poll by FactSet.
