About Independence

You're at the Center of Everything We Do

Serving nearly 10 million people in 24 states and the District of Columbia, including 2.5 million in southeastern Pennsylvania, Independence Health Group is the leading health insurance company in the Philadelphia region, and we're expanding across the country. Our mission to build healthier lives for you, your family, and your employees shapes our actions and decisions every day.

At Independence, we see each of our members as an individual, with unique needs and concerns. We're dedicated to harnessing the very latest ideas and technologies to deliver access to care that meets those needs and surpasses your expectations.

At the heart of our business is our Human-Centered InnovationSM Program — an intensive and innovative use of resources to focus on people and their health as we change the way health care is experienced. It's reflected not only in our many affordable health plans and problem-solving services tailored to the needs of real people, but also in the way we partner with best-in-class organizations and thought leaders to predict and prevent illness, and in our cutting-edge use of data analytics to help keep you healthier. It's visible in our support and mentorship of the most promising young health care companies and our bold new models of care, which reward physicians and hospitals for keeping you well.

We're revolutionizing health care, and our focus is on you.

A Robust, Diversified Portfolio of Products and Services

Our vision for a healthier America drives us to create new 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.

In addition, our subsidiaries provide specialty services and products including third-party benefits administration, pharmacy benefits management services, and workers' compensation insurance. Our national health business includes administration of self-funded groups, network access arrangements, claims processing, and other services on behalf of the 37 other independent Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans across the nation.

Best of Both Worlds: The Power of Blue, the Promise of Innovation

For more than 80 years, as a licensee of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, we've provided families with the security and stability that comes with a Blue Card — the powerful assurance that high-quality, compassionate care is at your fingertips. We've always been at the forefront of leading change that improves health, and today, more than ever, we're recognized and trusted not just for the quality and security we provide, but also as an industry leader and innovator with the ideas, influence, and resources to change health care for the better. It's a winning combination designed to improve health care — and your health.

A Global Perspective with a Community Focus

As we expand nationally, our philosophy of giving back to the community and our commitment to Philadelphia and our five-county region has never been stronger. We're strengthening the initiatives that we've lovingly built over the years — including community fitness events like the Blue Cross Broad Street Run and the many successful charitable programs of our Independence Blue Cross Foundation — and creating innovative new ways to engage our neighbors and improve their health.
