The journey of Elevance Health has been transformational, from a traditional health benefits organization to a lifetime, trusted health partner.
Driven by our bold purpose to improve the health of humanity, our approach to whole health is integrated into every part of our business as we support members and consumers throughout their lives. Equipped with digital capabilities, data, and resources, we are uniquely able to champion a whole-health approach and advance health beyond healthcare for consumers, their families, and communities. To reflect this evolution in our journey, we changed our corporate name to Elevance Health — the combination of elevate + advance — to convey our commitment to elevating the importance of whole health and advancing health beyond healthcare.
In 2022, we continued to deliver on our commitments and made significant progress in our goals. From launching resources centers to address the social needs of Medicaid members, to providing personalized care to commercial, Medicare, and Medicaid members using digital tools — we know that improving health for the consumers we serve is possible. Our work begins by redefining health, reimagining the system, and strengthening our communities.
