Creating healthier lives, together
Wellpoint is a leading managed care company dedicated to improving lives and promoting healthier communities. We are making healthcare simpler for individuals served by Medicaid, State Children's Health Insurance Program and other State-sponsored health programs.
We believe everyone deserves a medical "home" that goes beyond just providing access to care but also includes the services and supports people need to live healthier lives.

First, we listen
Person-centered, holistic care that addresses social determinants of health begins with caring enough to listen. Our approach of listening first ensures that we understand the priorities and needs of our members, providers, state partners, and communities so that together we can create solutions that truly make a difference.
Beyond improving access to care, our quality strategies and programs help individuals live their best lives by supporting their health goals and priorities. Wellpoint is also an industry leader in collaborating with providers to create value-based payment models that result in enhanced care and better health for our members.
We know from experience that the best innovations are fueled through partnerships. Our local model means our associates live and work in the communities we serve, and our local presence informs our approach to everything we do, shaping our fundamental belief in the power of integrated support and healthy communities.
