Date:1/7/2008

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- WellPoint, Inc. (NYSE: WLP) today announced that Mark Boxer, president and CEO of its Operations, Technology and Government Services Business Unit, has been recognized as one of Computerworld's 2008 Premier 100 IT leaders.

Computerworld's 2008 Premier 100 honors the 100 IT executives who have led their organizations by mentoring and motivating employees; envisioning innovative solutions to business challenges; and effectively managing and executing IT strategies.

"Mark is an exceptional business and technology leader whose success at bringing significant value to our members is recognized with this honor," said Angela Braly, president and CEO, WellPoint. "In an ever-changing business environment, Mark is keenly focused on developing solutions that make the health care experience more transparent to our members so they can make more informed decisions about their health."

This year's honorees were selected from nearly 800 nominees, who were measured against Computerworld's IT Leadership Index, a set of characteristics that describes executives who guide the effective use of IT in their organizations, and evaluated by the editors and by a panel of outside judges. The candidates were asked about a range of topics, including their backgrounds, work experiences, special accomplishments and leadership styles.

"This year's class of honorees is characterized by a diversity that demonstrates the value of unique backgrounds and approaches in building an outstanding IT organization," said Scot Finnie, editor-in-chief, Computerworld. "Yet what these individuals have in common is an expertise born of hard work and an intangible leadership quality they can tap to successfully champion IT not only as a business enabler, but as a business influencer."

"I'm honored to be selected and to be included with this incredible class of IT business professionals," said Boxer. "The decisions our members make about their health care are intensely personal ones. That's why I strongly believe that thoughtful, integrated IT solutions - such as our online cost and quality transparency tools and our innovative, multilingual online personal health records - can lead to better outcomes for our members."

Computerworld's Premier 100 IT Leaders Awards Program honors executives who show exemplary technology leadership in resolving pressing business problems. Honorees demonstrate the ability to foster creativity and challenging work environments, envision fresh approaches to business challenges and effectively manage IT investments.
