In 2007, the AmeriHealth Mercy Family of Companies sought to improve its ability to systematically deliver its strategy. Facing new competition in the managed healthcare industry and facing substantial changes due to federal health care reform, the organization determined that its existing results could not sustain the growth needed to face anincreasingly competitive landscape. AmeriHealth Mercy is a partnership of Mercy Health System,(a nonprofit health care organization delivering services to communities across the U.S., and Independence Blue Cross, a U.S.-based health care insurance organization.
The two companies joined together in 1996 to provide Medicaid managed care services, governmental programs that provide medical and health-related services to specific groups of people in the United States, to underserved and low-income populations. View further information of AmeriHealth Mercy
