Jul 09, 2012

Combination leverages both companies' goals of lowering costs for governments while improving care quality for program beneficiaries  

Earlier today, Anthem's parent company announced plans to acquire Amerigroup, one of the nation's leading corporations focused on meeting the health care needs of financially vulnerable Americans. Upon completion, Anthem's parent company, with its affiliated health plans, will serve more than 4.5 million Medicaid members.

Amerigroup's clinical capabilities, strong management team and proven track record in working with state and federal governments and the provider community will enhance the organization's ability to compete in the Dual Eligible and Medicaid markets, as well as strengthen WellPoint's position as they prepare for exchanges.
