Cigna reported net income increased 6% year over year to $1.6 billion during the second quarter as fewer people were admitted to the hospital, had fewer surgeries and visited the emergency room less. 

The Connecticut-based insurer said medical costs for both COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 care were lower than projected. The insurer’s medical loss ratio, an important measure of how much is spent on medical care, fell to 80.7% for the second quarter. Analysts said price hikes helped the MLR, too. 

As a result of the quarterly performance, Cigna raised financial targets for the year for revenue and income from operations.
