Premera Social Impact makes a difference in the lives of those living in our communities. Through corporate giving, volunteering, and community engagement, we promote new partnerships and solutions to help make healthcare work better.
Premera is taking a necessary leap forward to reimagine our commitment to social responsibility and effective philanthropy. As we live out our purpose of improving customers’ lives by making healthcare work better, we have the opportunity to be explicit about the impact we hope to see in our neighborhoods and communities.
Our community giving program focuses on addressing behavioral health issues, with a particular emphasis on funding programs that help historically underserved communities, including people of color and low-income populations. Community health data consistently shows disparities among these groups resulting in lower quality and access of healthcare services, worse health outcomes, and increased healthcare costs.
