At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL), we're committed to expanding access to quality, cost-effective health care to as many communities as possible in Illinois. We’ve been serving the people of Illinois since 1936, offering peace of mind during some of life’s most critical moments. We continue to build upon our strong legacy of being there for our members… through it all. 

We answer to our members, not shareholders. So we're able to take the long view to improve affordability and health as the health care industry evolves. 

For us, health includes physical, mental and social well-being. We’re making targeted investments to help close gaps and disparities in health care. 

BCBSIL employs more than 11,000 people across Illinois from Jacksonville to Rockford. We’re your neighbors. If it impacts your community, it impacts us as well. 

We’re where you need us to be. BCBSIL offers health insurance options statewide, whether it’s employer-sponsored coverage, individual and family coverage, or a government plan.
