Date:10/30/2008

Company Ranked First Among Nation's Health Insurers

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Oct. 30, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AMERIGROUP Corporation (NYSE: AGP) has been named one of America's Best Places to Work In Healthcare -- and the best among the country's health insurers -- in a survey conducted by Modern Healthcare magazine.

The survey, which was the first of its kind conducted by Modern Healthcare, was open to all American hospitals, medical practices and other companies whose primary business is healthcare, including producers of medical equipment and health insurers. More than 260 organizations participated. The survey evaluated eight separate aspects of each organization's work environment, including leadership and planning, pay and benefits, and overall employee satisfaction.

Modern Healthcare ranked three separate categories of healthcare organizations -- providers, insurers and equipment suppliers -- and identified AMERIGROUP as the top insurer. AMERIGROUP was the only healthcare organization in Virginia to make the list of 100 best workplaces. The magazine includes a profile of AMERIGROUP in its October 27 issue.

"We are very pleased that this respected publication has recognized AMERIGROUP as a great place to work," said James G. Carlson, AMERIGROUP Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We've often said that our Company's 4,000 associates are the best people in the industry and that they are responsible for our success. We have worked hard to create a culture of accountability and service to those who often need help. This environment enables our team to do their best work and rewards them for it. This honor from Modern Healthcare tells us we are on the right track."
