What does Blue Cross do in your community? A lot!

At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico, we’re proud to insure about a half-million people carrying a Blue Card. But did you know that we do much more than just insuring your health? For instance, in 2016 BCBSNM continued its long tradition of community service through volunteering and giving. We not only urge employees to give back to communities, we make it easy to see it through! We provide a list of volunteer events throughout the year, making it simple to take part. Also, our employees help at many “giving back” events they find on their own. Blue Corps℠ logged 11,000 hours, working with nonprofit groups on important community causes and projects. Why? Because we love you!

Employees also invested in community needs by giving money to charity efforts. Senior leaders volunteered and served in leadership roles on 25 civic and community groups, boards, and committees. This builds local partnerships to improve New Mexico communities we serve. We’re very proud of all the contributions made to our citizens and the state of New Mexico. We’re in the community help business over the long haul, just as we’ve been helping meet health care needs for more than 75 years.

Here are some stellar examples of some community outreach that one-upped ourselves last year:

  • Taking part or sponsoring 60 community events
  • Giving $1.2 million in grants and sponsorships to improve New Mexicans’ health and wellness
  • Sending our Care Van® to communities where 6,200 shots and health screenings were given
