Since 1933, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) has offered its customers high quality health insurance at a competitive price and has led the charge toward better health and health care in our state. BCBSNC is committed to making the health care system in North Carolina better – but they know they can’t do it alone. That’s why they have worked with doctors, hospitals and others to bring customers innovative solutions that simplify the health care system, improve efficiency and outcomes, and help rein in costs.
Although BCBSNC was founded as a nonprofit Medical and Hospital Services Corporation, it is a fully taxed company. Because they don’t have shareholders, their net income is invested back into the company to improve things for members, such as health programs, customer service, and technology. BCBSNC is accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), a widely recognized not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. Furthermore, they have received many awards and recognition, including awards for ethics, family friendliness, diversity, and more.
