Our top priorities, explained.
Why does healthcare cost so much? The price of medical care is the single biggest factor, accounting for 90 percent of spending.
BCBS companies provide coordinated, patient-centered care for millions of Medicare beneficiaries and are making sure it continues to modernize.
As prescription drug prices climb, we are working to ensure BCBS members get the medication they need at a price they can afford.
BCBS companies are addressing the opioid crisis in communities around the country, ensuring patients get the right care in the right setting.
BCBS companies provide access to critical health services for millions of adults and children through Medicaid, and are addressing the unique health challenges they face.
Healthcare should be available to everyone, no matter who they are or where they live. This starts with improving the individual market.
Leading voices in healthcare share their ideas.

Early in my career, I served as a community health worker for Medicaid families in Baltimore, and that work raised some important questions about the disadvantages and health consequences facing people in low-income communities. In Baltimore, for example, the difference in life expectancy between people who live in low-income areas compared with those in more affluent neighborhoods can be as much as 20 years.
