2018 COMMUNITY REPORT
Improving the Health of Rhode Islanders
As a local, nonprofit organization, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) is dedicated to passionately leading a state of health and well-being across Rhode Island. Our passion inspires our work every day, including how we give back to our community.
Through our BlueAngel Community Investment Program, we partner with results-oriented nonprofits to address critical health issues facing Rhode Islanders—from our signature efforts combating childhood obesity to eliminating healthcare disparities and strengthening the safety net for the uninsured. We’re grateful to our many community partners and our engaged employees for all they do to improve the lives of their friends and neighbors. Together, we are making a difference.
This report highlights some of our accomplishments from 2018.
"Our vision—to passionately lead a state of health and well-being across Rhode Island—captures the essence of who we are as a company and reinforces our deeply local roots. We're more than a traditional payer. Every year, we strive to do more, give more, and make a greater impact."
—Kim A. Keck, President and CEO, BCBSRI
