Favorable Pharmacy Results Power Humana’s Solid Earnings

Humana Inc.’s financial performance in the first quarter of this year received mostly positive reviews from Wall Street. Revenue growth from the health insurer’s mail-order pharmacy business alongside modest care utilization allowed the firm’s executives to raise their end-of-year earnings guidance.

The firm took in $23.9 billion in total revenue in the quarter, an increase from $20.6 billion in the first quarter last year. Humana’s pretax income for the quarter was $1.2 billion, up from about $1 billion in the first quarter of 2021. The firm’s adjusted earnings per share also increased year-over-year, going up to $8.04 from $7.67.
