Insurer UnitedHealth's quarterly profit more than doubles as medical costs drop
July 15 (Reuters) - UnitedHealth Group Inc UNH.N said on Wednesday its second-quarter profit more than doubled, helped by lower medical costs due to a fall in healthcare utilization following coronavirus-fueled lockdowns and social distancing.
Net earnings attributable to shareholders jumped to $6.64 billion, or $6.91 per share, in the three months ended June 30, from $3.29 billion, or $3.42 per share, a year earlier.
Total revenue rose to $62.14 billion from $60.60 billion.
