UnitedHealth Group Inc. draws its medical enrollment from five segments of health insurance. Three saw growth in the second quarter compared with the same quarter of 2009, helping to push the insurer’s medical enrollment up 1 percent to 32.5 million.

The Minnetonka, Minn., insurer sells commercial risk-based coverage, providing the insurance mostly to individuals and small businesses. It sells fee-based coverage that it administers for companies that assume the insurance risk in covering their employees and dependents.

It also sells Medicare Advantage, Medicaid and Medicare supplement insurance. Here’s how the enrollment for those segments changed in the second quarter from the prior-year period:

_ Commercial risk-based: down 4 percent to 9.2 million

_ Commercial fee-based: down less than 1 percent to 15.4 million

_ Medicare Advantage: up 17 percent to 2 million

_ Medicaid: up 16 percent to 3.2 million

_ Medicare supplement: up 4 percent to 2.7 million
