For generations, Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) companies have provided secure and stable coverage to meet the healthcare needs of America’s working families. Proudly serving over 17 million unionized workers, retirees and their families — more than any other insurer — we are committed to remaining the top healthcare insurer for working Americans, now and in the future.


We host educational webinars to inform BCBS labor leaders, plan and benefit administrators and healthcare industry experts about the latest healthcare trends, research and innovations. Webinars address the challenges and opportunities of today's healthcare environment, and how they may impact our members tomorrow.
