Disaster Response

Hurricane Ike damage

Amerigroup has a long history of supporting communities when disaster strikes. The company and its Foundation are committed to providing an appropriate and thoughtful response, particularly in communities where our associates and members may be directly affected. When it comes to disaster relief efforts, we believe that the best approach is a proactive one. That’s why our parent company, WellPoint, is a proud member of the American Red Cross’ Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP). A $1 million–level partner, WellPoint, along with its fellow ADGP members, helps provide a reliable funding base for disaster relief services. These funds enable the Red Cross to respond immediately to the needs of individuals and families affected by disaster anywhere in the United States, regardless of cost.

Additionally, through our associate engagement programs, Amerigroup encourages and augments the efforts of associates who want to contribute to disaster relief in their communities or the communities we serve. From organized blood drives at office locations across the country to emergency preparedness training, our associates commit their time, energy, and resources toward disaster relief efforts year-round.
