UnitedHealthcare should start passing along their savings to customers any day now, r-r-right?
UnitedHealth 1Q profit soars as ACA business shrinks

Quote
UnitedHealth's first-quarter profit soared 35 percent as the nation's biggest health insurer slashed participation in Affordable Care Act exchanges but grew just about every other part of its business.

The insurer also hiked its 2017 earnings forecast on Tuesday, and company shares started climbing shortly after it detailed results.

I mean isn't that normally the argument put forward by free marketeers?  Companies will pass on savings to their customers through efficiencies and such?

Or is it only more costs get passed on to consumers while the company keeps whatever savings they get?

I think they'd say that the market isn't really free, too much government interference, need total deregulation before it "counts." Capitalism can never fail, it can only be failed.
