Modern Healthcare

Humana reported income of $368 million in the third quarter of 2013, down from $426 million for the same period last year.

The Louisville-based company’s earnings per share also slipped, from $2.62 for the third quarter of 2012 to $2.31 for the reporting period that closed at the end of September.

But Humana’s projection for 2013 earnings remained unchanged from previous forecasts. The publicly traded company, more than 12 million members, expects to earn between $8.65 and $8.75 per share for the year.
