Things change. But our mission never will.

As the name generations have counted on for more than 80 years, we’ve seen it all when it comes to health insurance. New technology, new ideas, new medical breakthroughs. In fact, we invented the idea of health insurance back in the 1930s. Since then, we’ve ridden the waves of change with compassion, strength and a guiding hand.

Today is a new world of change, one that shows no signs of slowing down. Grounded by our principles, we’re committed to ensuring all Americans have the coverage choices they need at a price they can afford.  We understand the needs of our communities, because we live, work and play alongside you.

we believe that

Everyone should have access to health insurance, regardless of pre-existing conditions.

You should be confident you’ll get the care you need, when you need it. That means we believe there should be no lifetime caps on your medical care.

Women should not be charged more for coverage than men. And young adults should be able to stay on their parents’ plans until age 26, allowing them to live healthy while they get started in life.   

With the compassion of the cross, and the security of the shield, obstacles become openings. And today is no different. Powered by our purpose of security for all, we will continue to drive forward. Unrelentingly bringing the same passion in protecting your family’s health to the protection of everything that goes with it. We believe this will bring Americans the insurance choices they want at a price they can afford.

Change is never easy, but we’re committed to creating a more fearless tomorrow.
