    When I saw recently that the nation’s largest health insurer, UnitedHealth Group, reported a 25 percent increase in shareholder earnings to $10.56 billion in 2017 and added about 1.1 million additional policyholders nationally, it made me wonder how health plans in Iowa fared financially over the past year.
