About Wellpoint

Trusted by GIC members


Wellpoint is the health benefits company trusted by more individuals insured through the Massachusetts Group Insurance Commission (GIC). For over three decades, as the UniCare State Indemnity Plan, Wellpoint has served state and municipal employees, retirees, and their dependents insured through the GIC. As of July 1, 2024, our name is changing to Wellpoint – but our experience, dedication, and commitment to the hard-working public servants of our Commonwealth remains as ever.

At home in Massachusetts


The people insured through the GIC share a dedication to public service. Wellpoint has been right here in Massachusetts – based first in Andover and then Woburn – committed to serve the dedicated individuals and families who serve our Commonwealth and its municipalities.

Your health needs – our priority


We know that your health needs are a top priority. We work to ensure that you and your family's health needs come first. Wellpoint is 100% dedicated to providing the best personalized service available anywhere, because your health comes first.
