Highline Data Analysis Shows Revenue for Health Insurance Industry Groups Grew in 2007 CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Total Revenue for the five largest health insurance industry groups increased by an average of 6.3 percent in 2007, according to an analysis by Highline Data. The Health Industry Group Report compared the statutory financial state of 110 health industry groups and 354 non-affiliated companies to the Health Industry Aggregate, known as HCOMP. The report also reviewed the financial state of the 15 publicly traded health industry groups. According to the data, the five largest groups based on total revenue reported to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) and the California Department of Managed Health Care were WellPoint, Inc., the Kaiser Family Foundation, UnitedHealth Group, Health Care Services Corporation and Aetna. Among them, net premiums written grew an average of nearly 6 percent even as total members declined by almost 2 percent. Total revenue and net premiums written for the health industry as a whole grew 8.7 percent and 8.5 percent, respectively. The five largest publicly traded groups by total revenue reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission -- UnitedHealth Group, WellPoint, Inc., Aetna, Humana, Inc. and the CIGNA Corporation -- saw an average total revenue increase of 9.4 percent in 2007.
