Insurer Anthem to remain headquartered in Indianapolis


FILE – This Feb. 5, 2015 file photo shows the Anthem logo at the health insurer’s corporate headquarters in Indianapolis. Anthem is buying rival Cigna, in a deal valued at $54.2 billion announced Friday, July 24, 2015, that will create the nation’s largest health insurer by enrollment, covering about 53 million patients in the U.S. […]

Anthem says it will remain headquartered in Indianapolis, ending speculation about the health insurer’s future in the city where it was founded nearly 75 years ago.

President and CEO Gail K. Boudreaux announced Tuesday that Anthem will spend about $20 million to renovate its operations center near downtown Indianapolis into a new headquarters “that reflects our proud history.”

The new headquarters will house more than 2,600 employees, some of whom now work in its longtime headquarters on downtown Indianapolis’ Monument Circle.

Anthem announced in January that it would vacate that space and consolidate those offices with its nearby operations center.

The Indianapolis Business Journal reports Anthem’s silence on whether that consolidation would be permanent spurred speculation it might move its headquarters to a new office tower it’s building in Atlanta.
