Amerigroup Corporation
Amerigroup, a wholly owned subsidiary of WellPoint, Inc., was founded in 1994 as AMERICAID Community Care to meet the needs of families enrolled in publicly funded health-care programs. Today, it strives to help the nation’s most vulnerable and, in doing so, enhance the health outcomes of its members and solve the toughest health-care challenges for all eligible people in the United States regardless of age, sex, race or disability.

Currently serving more than 2.7 million members in 13 states nationwide, Amerigroup is dedicated to offering real solutions that improve health-care access and quality for its members while proactively working to reduce the overall cost of health care to taxpayers by helping members to avoid expensive emergency room use. Because Amerigroup’s product offerings do not utilize any individual underwriting nor deny coverage due to preexisting medical conditions, since 1996, Amerigroup has saved taxpayers more than $2 billion while maintaining quality care.

Amerigroup Nevada brings health care services to around 86,000 financially vulnerable residents of Nevada, annually covering for them around 11,600 surgeries, 7,700 births and filling 846,750 prescriptions. Since February 2009, Amerigroup Nevada has administered three publicly funded health care programs: Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Nevada Child Health Assurance Program (CHAP) and Nevada Check Up, Nevada’s Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

Amerigroup is a trustworthy advocate that does the right thing, promoting transparency in its deeds and keeping its commitments. Known for accountability in delivering results while striving for excellence, Amerigroup makes a difference for beneficiaries with innovations that support creativity and challenging the status quo in the present while looking to the future.

Together with WellPoint’s affiliated health plans, Amerigroup serves more than 4.5 million beneficiaries of state-sponsored health plans in 20 states, making it the nation’s leading provider of health-care solutions for public programs.
