Our top priorities, explained.
BCBS companies are addressing the opioid crisis in communities around the country, ensuring patients get the right care in the right setting.
Why does healthcare cost so much? The price of medical care is the single biggest factor, accounting for 90 percent of spending.
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 provide coordinated, patient-centered care for millions of Medicare beneficiaries and are making sure it continues to modernize.
Healthcare should be available to everyone, no matter who they are or where they live. This starts with improving the individual market.
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.
Leading voices in healthcare share their ideas.

We have made great strides over the last two decades in the fight against youth tobacco use. In 2000, 23 percent of teens smoked, a proportion that dropped to an all-time low of 4.6 percent in 2018 — a remarkable milestone for public health. Truth Initiative is proud to have significantly contributed to that decline through our youth smoking prevention and education campaign, truth® which has prevented millions of young people from becoming smokers, including more than 2.5 million in the past three years alone.1
