As the nation’s leading health benefits company, WellPoint can play a key role advocating national health care policy and practices to benefit the public. Health care is an increasingly regulated and legislated industry both at the federal and state level. Elected officials make decisions that directly affect our ability to make quality health care coverage affordable and to improve the health of the communities we serve. Our active participation in the political process is essential to ensure that we have a voice in those decisions. At WellPoint, we are committed to advocating public policy solutions that best serve our customers, our stakeholders, our associates, and our communities.
