About Independence

You’re at the center of everything we do

Independence Blue Cross is the leading health insurance company in southeastern Pennsylvania, and with our affiliates we serve more than 8 million people nationwide. For more than 80 years, we have worked 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. That security has never been more essential than during the global COVID-19 pandemic. Our top priority in this crisis has been to give our members access to the care, education, and support they need. We have worked closely with local, state, and national leaders and public health experts to fight the outbreak. And we have committed to supporting the nonprofits on the frontlines of providing services to vulnerable people in our region.

We offer products and services that fit the way you live. Our portfolio includes coverage 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. Our affiliates provide specialty services and products, including third-party benefits administration and worker’s compensation insurance.

Independence is committed to innovation. We are uniquely qualified to help shape healthcare 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 strive to develop solutions that will make the health care experience more convenient, effective, and affordable.

We also serve and inspire our members and communities. We sponsor community programs focused on good health like the Blue Cross Broad Street Run and the Indego bike share program. We support organizations that are addressing the greatest health care challenges in our community through our Independence Blue Cross Foundation. And our active Blue Crew volunteer program makes an impact throughout the region.

Every day, we are building the healthcare company of the future by redefining what to expect from a health insurer.
