To blind members of Anthem and Blue Cross, Blue Shield companies owned by WellPoint:
We’re trying to spread the word about our agreement with WellPoint, a company that owns Anthem, Blue Cross and Blue Shield operations across the United States. All WellPoint companies are now providing insurance information in alternative formats, including braille, large print, audio and electronic formats. They’ve also designed their websites and mobile applications to be accessible. WellPoint worked with blind members in Structured Negotiations with Linda Dardarian and me on this initiative, and we really encourage people who are blind and visually impaired to take advantage of this new program. You can find out if your state is covered in this post: http://lflegal.com/2014/07/wellpoint-blue/.
We also need feedback to help make the program as strong as it can be. The best way to give feedback is to email me at LF@LFLegal.com. People without email access can leave a message at 510-548-5062.
Members can request the alternative formats by calling the number on the back of their health insurance card, or any other number they use to reach a WellPoint company.
WellPoint is now the industry leader in providing insurance information in alternative formats. Please help us spread the word, and please let us know of your experiences with the new program.
