The nation’s largest medical insurer can anticipate a few headaches in the wake of the Supreme Court upholding the Affordable Care Act last June. The legislation could mean larger expenses for the insurer as medical care costs continue to rise and more people are directed to sign up for insurance. However, in its first year on the Dow Jones Industrial Average, UnitedHealth continued to have steady growth, with membership swelling 6% to 83.7 million customers. Most of the company's additional customers came from its strategic acquisitions of XLHealth, a provider of Medicare Advantage plans, and Amil, Brazil’s largest health insurer, signaling UnitedHealth's expansion plans for the South American market.
