4 insurance companies that conducted layoffs in 2022

Here are four payer layoffs Becker's reported this year. 

  1. Blue Shield of California will lay off 373 employees across the state by Jan. 25. The bulk of the layoffs are occurring in the Sacramento region but also include cuts at the insurer's Oakland headquarters and elsewhere in the state. 

  2. Humana plans to lay off 157 employees at its SeniorBridge facility in Jupiter, Fla., as it prepares to close most of its SeniorBridge locations nationwide. The layoffs include 149 caregivers, six field nurses, one sales executive and one care supervisor.

  3. Bright Health laid off 150 workers, 5 percent of the company's workforce, in March. In November, the company said it will lay off 99 more workers at its Minnesota headquarters in the first weeks of 2023. The company had a challenging 2022, ending much of its individual and group insurance business. 

  4. GoHealth, an online insurance marketplace, laid off many of its agent workforce and support teams in August. CEO Vijay Kotte did not specify how many employees were affected, but The Chicago Tribune reported 800 people were to be laid off.
