    Social impact

    The prevalence of behavioral health conditions is greater than the five most common chronic health conditions (heart failure, coronary artery disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, and diabetes) combined. That's why Premera is committed to addressing the needs of our communities. We are investing in behavioral health issues particularly in underserved communities.
