How BCBSRI is helping

As a local, nonprofit health insurer, we’re proud to call Rhode Island our home and are committed to playing an important role in leading through the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful for the chance to support our friends and neighbors during this difficult time.

Supporting the work of our community partners

Many of the organizations supporting COVID-19 efforts are the nonprofits we work with throughout the year to improve the health of Rhode Islanders. We’re proud to also support their important work during this pandemic:

  • COVID-19 Response Fund: United Way of Rhode Island and Rhode Island Foundation
  • COVID-19 Behavioral Health Fund: Rhode Island Foundation
  • COVID-19 Homeless Response Team: Crossroads Rhode Island, Amos House, Providence Rescue Mission
  • Rhode Island PBS short film series, Kids Want to Know

Volunteering to help neighbors in need

All BCBSRI full-time employees are given 12 hours of paid volunteer time annually, and our BlueAngel volunteers have been using that time—and their own time—to:

  • Deliver daily meals to homebound older adults through Meals on Wheels
  • Donate blood at the Rhode Island Blood Center
  • Consult with local nonprofits via Zoom on professional services such as human resources, legal services, financial management, and communications

Find out more about our community investment during the pandemic in our 2020 Annual and Community Report. You can also learn more about our philanthropic efforts to passionately lead a state of health and well-being across Rhode Island in our Community Investment section.
