INDIANAPOLIS, April 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- WellPoint, Inc.

"While the first quarter was challenging for WellPoint, since our March announcement we have further reduced claims inventories and achieved greater visibility into medical costs," said Angela F.

We offer access to the largest provider network in the industry, with competitive pricing, distinctive care management and wellness programs, and innovative medical cost transparency tools. We will continue to enhance this superior value proposition with new product offerings in order to drive future membership gains and long-term earnings growth," added Braly.

"Operating cash flow was strong in the first quarter, at $1.0 billion, or 1.8 times net income, and our medical claims payable increased by $610 million, or 10.5 percent, while claims inventories declined.
