Social Mission Making a difference in our community

As a local, not-for-profit organization, Independence Blue Cross’s (IBC) values have always been firmly rooted within the community. Giving back has always been one of our company’s highest priorities, a point of pride, and a defining feature of our corporate culture.

From associate volunteerism to sponsoring initiatives to help make health insurance more affordable for and accessible to everyone, we strive to maintain and improve the health and well-being of our community through our unique social mission.

Here are some of the ways we’re helping our region to shape a healthier future:

Independence Blue Cross Foundation

The Independence Blue Cross Foundation is a charitable, private foundation, launched in October 2011, which complements and expands upon IBC’s commitment to the health and well-being of our community in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Low-cost Health Coverage

We help to provide free or low-cost health coverage to uninsured children and adults in our region through our specialty coverage programs:

The Blue Crew

Throughout the year we engage the community in innovative wellness and education programs and health-focused events. To further assist our neighbors, IBC associates volunteer thousands of hours of service to local causes through The Blue Crew — our corporate volunteer program.
