The Power

 of Blue

The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, which represents the 34 locally based and independently operated Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) companies, released its latest annual The Health of America Community Investment Report.

The report highlights the commitment of the companies and their foundations to helping Americans across the country live healthier lives.

Since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Blue Cross Blue Shield companies have been a steadfast partner in their communities.

We’ve provided billions of dollars in response effort, community support, distributing accurate trusted health information and offering a neighborly helping hand as Americans weathered the crisis.

The BCBSWY mission to help address food insecurity is featured in the 2021 report. We have teamed up with the Wyoming First Lady Jennie Gordon and her Wyoming Hunger Initiative. Together we have provided thousands of meals;  BCBSWY’s Caring Foundation has donated over $150,000; and employees have volunteered as boots on the ground to alleviate the state’s food insecurity issues.
