About Blue Cross NC

For 85 years, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina has been working hand-in-hand with our customers and communities. We’ve been helping members navigate the uncertainty of health care with plans, information, and resources at their fingertips. Together we’ve contributed to the community with the purpose of strengthening the health and vitality of families across our state. All because we know thriving communities aren’t composed of brick and wood. They are comprised of individuals, coming together and working towards positive change. And that’s Blue Cross NC’s vision for Thrive NC.

Good food. Good talk. Good works. Each plays a role in good health!
