Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield and WellPoint’s History

Anthem, Inc. grew out of two Indianapolis-based corporations formed in 1944 and 1946 as mutual insurance companies.  Those two companies were created to provide health insurance to residents of Indiana as Blue Cross of Indiana and Blue Shield of Indiana.  They eventually merged to form Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Indiana.

WellPoint Health Network Inc.’s predecessor was Blue Cross of California, which was founded in 1982 with the consolidation of Blue Cross of Northern California (established in 1936) and Blue Cross of Southern California (established in 1937).

WellPoint was created in 1986 as the manager of health care operations for the non-profit insurer, Blue Cross of California.  After WellPoint became their own insurance company and acquired Anthem, they became WellPoint Incorporated.  In 1993, Blue Cross of California spun off its managed care business into a separate publicly traded entity, WellPoint Health Networks Inc.

In 1996, Blue Cross of California completed the conversion of all its business to for-profit status, resulting in a restructuring that designated WellPoint Health Networks Inc. as the parent organization.

Today, they are one of many independent companies in the BCBS Association.  Anthem operated independently for over 60 years, then merged with WellPoint Health Networks in 2005.  At the time of the merger, the parent company assumed the name WellPoint, Inc.  In December 2014, WellPoint changed its name to Anthem, Inc.  They are headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Now, as one of the nations largest health insurance providers, Anthem and WellPoint is focused on healthy living and providing affordable access to health care.

Their managed care plans organize networks of thousands of doctors, hospitals, specialists, and clinics all across the country.  Anthem and WellPoint also support the use of evidence-based medicine to continue improving the quality of care and reduce medical errors.

In Nevada, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is the trade name of Rocky Mountain Hospital and Medical Service, Inc.
