Our roots go back nearly a century, when we offered the first health insurance plans in the U.S. These plans were created for working people—teachers, miners, and lumberjacks who wanted affordable, quality health care.
The need for affordable, quality health care has not changed, and employees continue to expect this benefit from their employers. As a statewide customer-owned health insurer, our mission is to bring both access and affordability to employers and their teams.
We bring the best of both worlds to our members and their communities:
|• Plans that meet today’s needs, budgets and lifestyles||• Higher quality health care;|
|• Lower health care costs||• Award-winning diversity practices|
When you consider Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois for health insurance, you can know you’re getting much more. We’re a company founded on a tradition of affordable, quality health care for everyone, improving the present and investing in the future. Some things never change.
