About Independence

You’re at the center of everything we do

Independence Blue Cross (IBX) is the leading health insurance company in southeastern Pennsylvania. With our affiliates, we serve millions of people nationwide. For more than 85 years, we’ve had an unwavering commitment to our mission to enhance the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve.

As a licensee of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, we provide families with the security and stability that comes with a Blue Card.

Together with our affiliates and subsidiaries, we offer a wide range of market-leading health plans and specialty services for national businesses, large employer groups, and small businesses; portable benefits for when you travel or live abroad; Medicare supplemental and Medicare Advantage products; Medicaid; and specialty services such as vision and dental coverage and third-party benefits administration.


We believe in the power of innovation to make meaningful and measurable differences in health care quality, access, experience, and cost. And as the hometown health insurer, we are uniquely qualified to help shape health care in the Philadelphia region and beyond. We have built a national reputation for seeking innovative partnerships with fellow world-class organizations in Philadelphia and across the country to enable better health for our members.


We are passionate about serving and inspiring our members and communities. IBX sponsors community programs focused on good health like the Independence Blue Cross Broad Street Run, the Independence Blue Cross RiverRink, and the Indego bike share program. Through our Independence Blue Cross Foundation, we support organizations that are addressing the greatest health care challenges in our community. And our active Blue Crew volunteer program embodies the power of corporate citizenship through our year-round impact in the region.

Every day, we are building the health care company of the future by redefining what to expect from a health insurer. We’ve led the way in advocating and innovating for our members, employers, providers, and the communities we serve — and we’ll keep on doing it.
