To blind members of Anthem and Blue Cross, Blue Shield companies 
owned by WellPoint:

This message provides information about WellPoint's accessibility 
initiative for its blind members.  WellPoint is a national company 
that owns Anthem, Blue Cross and Blue Shield operations across the 
United States.  You can find out if your state is covered in this 

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 Blue Cross 
members in Structured Negotiations on this initiative, and we 
encourage people who are blind or have low vision to take advantage 
of this new program.

We also need feedback to help make the program as strong as it can be 
and generally make sure it is working as it is supposed to.  The best 
way to give feedback is to email me at 
<mailto:LF at LFLegal.com>LF at LFLegal.com.  People without email access 
can leave a message at 510.548.5062.

Alternative formats can be requested by calling the number on the 
back of your health insurance card, or any other number you 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.

Thanks, Lainey

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the 
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise 
the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create 
obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life 
you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
