U.S. insurers had better luck with getting more people into the privately administered versions of government plans in the third quarter of 2016 than at increasing enrollment in their ordinary commercial health coverage.

The firm found that carriers’ managed Medicaid plans continued to grow rapidly in the third quarter.
Enrollment in managed Medicaid plans reached 50 million in the quarter. That was up 9 percent from the enrollment total for the third quarter of 2015.
