Our solid fourth quarter and full year 2010 results affirm that our ongoing efforts to sharpen the focus of the company continue to drive improved performance, said Jay Gellert, Health Nets chief executive officer. Membership in our efficient-network commercial products is growing. Our balance sheet strengthened throughout 2010, and we ended the year with a debt-to-total capital ratio of less than 20 percent. Our strong results produced cash flow that supported more than $230 million of share repurchases in 2010.
With a successful 2010 behind us, our goal is to achieve further improvement in 2011. We believe we have had the best open enrollment commercial selling season in many years, and this supports our view that we will achieve commercial enrollment growth in 2011. In addition, the preliminary government enrollment data shows that our 2011 Medicare Advantage enrollment is better than we expected when we issued our 2011 guidance in December 2010, Gellert added.
