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 post:
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 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
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.

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.
