INDIANAPOLIS, April 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- WellPoint, Inc. (NYSE: WLP) today announced the appointment of Kevin R. Hayden as president of its State Sponsored Business division, effective April 21, 2008.

In his new role, Hayden will be responsible for leading WellPoint's Medicaid business division which currently serves more than 2 million members in 14 states.

"WellPoint is very fortunate to add the quality of experience and expertise that Kevin will bring to our State Sponsored Business," said Brian Sassi, president and chief executive officer of WellPoint's Consumer Business Unit. "Kevin's years of dedicated service to the health care sector coupled with his direct involvement to develop and shape Medicaid programs at the state level will help WellPoint continue to meet the needs of this important market segment."
