NU Online News Service, Feb. 4, 10:27 a.m. – Humana Inc., Louisville, Ky., is reporting $35 million in net income for the fourth quarter of 2001 on $2.6 billion in revenue, up from $27 million in net income on $2.6 billion in revenue for the fourth quarter of 2000.

The managed care company provided or administered major medical coverage for 6.4 million people at the end of 2001, up 21% from a year earlier.
