Supplier Diversity

All of Independence Blue Cross’s (Independence) contracts for goods and services are based on the best combination of total cost, quality, and service. This provides a level playing field to all potential and existing suppliers and gives us a strong and varied base of goods and services to support our daily operations and meet the needs of our members.

Through our Supplier Diversity Program, we provide opportunities to businesses that are at least 51 percent owned by a minority group member or a woman. By cultivating these relationships, we can foster the growth of these businesses while promoting the long-term growth of Independence. It is our goal to continue these partnerships and ensure an equal opportunity for all companies who want to do business with us.
