WellPoint, through its affiliated health plans, has significantly increased its investment in patient care by increasing revenue opportunities for primary care physicians, expanding on the CareMore comprehensive care model, and advancing the development of IBM Watson enabled products designed to help doctors make more informed health care decisions.
A patient can feel confident knowing that WellPoint is making the right investments in a delivery system that has their best interests in mind—providing doctors with the tools they need to get their patients healthy and make sure they stay healthy.
WellPoint, through its affiliated health plans, takes a holistic approach to caring for its customers—providing them with products and offerings focused on head-to-toe wellness and ensuring they get them at the best possible value. When people have the tools to get healthy, stay healthy and save money there is a sense of satisfaction.
An enhanced consumer experience starts by putting the customer first, then offering tools to help them get fit, giving incentives for making healthier choices, and offering the products they need at the value they want.
WellPoint has made the investments to become a strong competitor and create more affordable health care choices for consumers—enabling its plans to offer lower premium narrow network options, creaing a product portfolio that meets the needs of all consumers, and acquiring one of the nation's leading Medicaid managed care companies.
Anticipating growth opportunities in the Medicaid marketplace, WellPoint acquired Amerigroup in 2012. Managed care companies like Amerigroup, which specialize in Medicaid, will play a vital role toward improving care and helping state and federal governments better manage their health care costs.
WellPoint is improving the health of the communities we serve by investing in those communities. The WellPoint Foundation has strategically funded programs across the United States that advocate healthy behaviors, promote health-risk prevention and foster healthy environments.
Our associates are just as committed to the mission. They have pledged their money to national and local charities and worked alongside their family members and friends volunteering their time at local organizations.
WellPoint is utilizing its financial resources to position for coming growth opportunities and enhance value for customers and shareholders. Recent acquisitions of Amerigroup and 1-800 CONTACTS have increased WellPoint’s services and capabilities in key markets, while investments in the expansion of the CareMore model and in preparation for health insurance exchanges reinforce the company’s focus on driving greater accessibility and affordability for consumers. WellPoint’s commitment to investing for the future has been supported by consistent earnings per share growth and a strong share repurchase and dividend payment program.
