    Increasing equitable access to quality, affordable healthcare tailored to fit a community's needs.

    At Premera, our purpose is to improve customers' lives by making healthcare work better. That means we need to recognize the areas where healthcare falls short. Many long-standing health inequities exist because of poverty, systemic racism, and discrimination. The result is unfair, unjust, and can have a negative impact on health.

    Health equity goals

    • Thinking outside of traditional healthcare responses will help address real-life, common challenges that prevent people from accessing the care they deserve
    • Solutions that improve the health for our populations will benefit other historically marginalized groups
    • A fair healthcare system can and should improve health outcomes and quality of care and contribute to the elimination of racial and ethnic health disparities

    Continuing medical education

    There are many resources available to build knowledge in health equity that provide tools for you to best connect with your patients and community.
