UnitedHealth Group on Oct. 13 said overall revenues for the third quarter of 2023 climbed 14% from a year ago to $92.4 billion, reflecting double-digit growth at both its Optum and UnitedHealthcare divisions. The company also recorded a medical loss ratio of 82.3%, which was higher (worse) than the 81.6% reported for the third quarter of 2022. UnitedHealth said that was largely due to the previously disclosed uptick in inpatient care, primarily among seniors, and business mix. Revenues for the UnitedHealthcare insurance segment rose 13% from a year ago to $69.9 billion, reflecting growth in the number of people served. The company estimated it will have added nearly 1 million Medicare Advantage customers by the end of the year. The company raised its 2023 adjusted earnings per share outlook to a range of $24.85 to $25, from a previous range of $23.60 to $23.75 per share.
