NEW YORK, July 30 (Reuters) - Insurer Cigna Corp (CI.N) posted a higher-than-expected quarterly profit on Thursday, helped by growth in its disability and life, and international segments, while earnings at its main healthcare unit only dipped slightly.
Its shares rose 5.8 percent as the large U.S. health insurer nudged up its full-year profit forecast. Cigna stood by its expectation for 2009 healthcare earnings even as it sees a steeper decline in year-end health plan enrollment.
