The Blue Cross Blue Shield National Labor Office (NLO) acts as a liaison between organized labor and BCBS companies, working hand in hand to ensure healthcare coverage for working Americans.

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.

 Education & Advocacy

We bring healthcare industry experts, labor leaders, and BCBS Plans together to address the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities of today's healthcare environment. Utilizing many platforms enables us to reach members where they are and advocate on what may impact our members tomorrow.
