HealthLeaders Media

WellPoint Inc. does business in more markets than any other private plan in the United States and its size and dominance could spur anti-competitive practices, the American Medical Association says.

The AMA’s annual survey of insurer competition found that WellPoint was the largest insurer by market share in 82 of 388 metropolitan areas examined.

WellPoint operates in metropolitan markets in 13 states, including: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Missouri, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Virginia and West Virginia.
