Anthem is motivated and inspired by the tremendous opportunity we have to simplify healthcare and improve the
lives and communities of the people we serve.
The work of Anthem’s Public Policy Institute (PPI) reflects that
passion, and is designed to be an important resource for policymakers, employers, consumers, researchers and
other stakeholders helping to shape the future of healthcare in America.
PPI analyzes data, invests in research, builds partnerships with academia, and brings together healthcare experts
and other thought leaders to inform public policy. It strives to provide objective and credible insights to
address many of the critical policy topics impacting all Americans – affordability and quality of healthcare,
the future of Medicare and Medicaid, transformation of health care delivery and payment, social determinants of
health, and mental health and substance use disorders, to name a few.
I hope you will find PPI’s research and insights to be valuable resources in informing policy discussions at the
state and federal levels. I also hope that you will engage us in dialogue about these critical healthcare
issues, along with other emerging health policy topics, so that together we may advance the issues of
affordability, accessibility, and quality of healthcare for everyone.
