Excellus named to ‘Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion’

Excellus BlueCross BlueShield has been named to the Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion after receiving a top score of 100% on the 2022 Disability Equality Index (DEI), a national benchmarking survey by Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities.

The DEI is a comprehensive benchmarking tool that helps companies build a roadmap of measurable, tangible actions that they can take to achieve disability inclusion and equality. Each company receives a score, on a scale of zero (0) to 100, with those earning 80 and above recognized as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion.”

“Being named a Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion for a second year reflects the dedication, passion and work of so many throughout the health plan — guided by a commitment to inclusion, diversity, equity and access. While we celebrate this designation, we recognize our work is never done and will continue to drive positive change for our employees, members, and the communities we live in and serve,” said Sady Alvarado-Fischer, corporate director of diversity, equity and inclusion for Excellus BlueCross BlueShield.
