Federal policy

For many years, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota has supported health care reform. We have advocated public policy positions that expand coverage to all, effectively control costs and improve and reward the delivery of high quality health care. We are working diligently to communicate our policy positions to Congress and the Administration and to offer constructive comments and suggestions when appropriate.
