    Adjusted earnings rose to $1.33 per share from $1.16 per share.
    Analysts forecast a smaller profit of $1.23 per share.
    Revenue was $14.65 billion, topping analysts' $14.37 billion.
    Medical enrollment surpassed 33.3 million members at quarter's end, down 1 percent from the year-ago period.
