In the third quarter, the company expects adjusted EPS of $1.47 to $1.50 which is affected by the timing of the Medicare Part D operating profit between the third and fourth quarters relative to the prior year, resulting from the variability between the quarters as members move through the risk corridor.

Second-quarter adjusted earnings per share was $1.33 compared to $1.32, prior year. Net revenues increased 4.5%, to $45.7 billion, up from $43.7 billion, previous year.
