The following message was sent to all Anthem Blue Cross associates on Tuesday. As valued partners, we felt you would benefit and appreciate reading not only the testimony offered to the California Assembly Committee on Health, but also the manner in which this was shared with the thousands of caring, hard working and dedicated associates in the California plan. We invite you to read the testimony which can be accessed here.

Subject: This Is Who We Are and What We Stand For

Dear California Associates:

As you may know, I was invited to testify today before the California Assembly Committee on Health regarding the recently announced individual rate actions. With me was Jim Oatman, Vice President, Individual Business, West Region. In my testimony, I spoke about the people of Anthem Blue Cross and the work we do together with partners across the system of care to address fundamental, underlying issues in the health care system. Jim addressed details relating to the individual rate actions.

In this time of national political debate, there will be continuing negative press. I thought you would be interested to see my words of pride about the work you do, who you are and what you stand for. 

Please hold these thoughts close as we go through the days and weeks ahead.

Anthem Blue Cross
