Health Equity

Health equity is about giving everyone the chance to be as healthy as possible. More equitable healthcare is attainable. However, health inequities impact all of us, causing higher illness and death rates and greater financial strain at both community and national levels. It is imperative we overcome these barriers that prevent better health for everyone. 

Health Equity by Design

This is why Elevance Health is dedicated to advancing health equity. We’re committing ourselves to what we call “health equity by design.” It’s our personalized and intentional approach to ensure that all people, regardless of race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, and geographic or financial access can receive individualized care. We have comprehensive, long-term goals to broadly advance health equity, such as ensuring people with disabilities and rural residents can find accessible care. Additionally, in the near term we’re prioritizing three areas to drive immediate progress: maternal health, behavioral health, and access to evidence-based medical therapy.
