CareFirst Review

CareFirst has been serving the healthcare needs of Mid-Atlantic residents since the mid 1930’s. As a not-for-profit company, they are less likely to prioritize their bottom line ahead of their clients. They gave back more than $57 million to the local community in 2013 alone. CareFirst also won the “Most Ethical Company” award for the years 2013 and 2014.
