At Blue Cross, we’re dedicated to improving the health of our members and all Rhode Islanders by providing access to cost-effective, high-quality healthcare.

We’re leading the way to improve the healthcare delivery system in our state by:

  • Offering innovative benefits that reward members for healthy choices. 
  • Partnering with primary care physicians to open patient-centered medical homes across the state. We’ve signed patient-centered medical home agreements with more than 25 percent of primary care physicians in the state, which will ultimately impact more than 100,000 members.
  • Working hard to reinvigorate primary care through increased reimbursements for office visits, a loan forgiveness program, and a grant program for electronic health records. 
  • Moving toward compensation models that reward physicians for high-quality care instead of the number of services they provide. 
  • Supporting federal healthcare reform, including covering dependents to age 26 and holding educational sessions on the law. 


Our Vision

To improve the quality of life of our customers and of the people of Rhode Island by improving their health.
