While UnitedHealth Group will see revenue growth slow in coming years, the country's largest health insurer will likely post about $275 billion in revenue by 2021, according to a report from financial analyst firm Trefis.

Over the last three years, UnitedHealth has seen net revenues grow at an average annual rate of 11 percent. The insurer's net revenues are expected to increase from $226.2 billion in 2018 to $275.8 billion by 2021.

The increase will mainly be driven by growth in UnitedHealthcare's Medicare and Retirement business. Revenues in that segment are expected to grow higher than $97.5 billion by 2021, according to Trefis.
