About Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska

Who we are

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska (BCBSNE) is a member of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, an association of independent Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans. BCBSNE is an independent insurance company licensed by the State of Nebraska.

BCBSNE has done business in Nebraska for over 70 years. We work jointly with network health care professionals in providing the best health care possible to our customers.

Financial stability

Although the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association does not act as a guarantor of each Plan’s financial obligations, all Plans are subject to uniform financial standards established by the Association. These standards are intended to foster a system in which each Plan maintains adequate resources to meet its obligations to its customers. BCBSNE monitors financial and operational performance in several ways.

Business leaders, consumers and health care professionals across the state sit on our Board of Directors. The Board sets standards for operations and financial performance. Such standards include the amount of operating reserves we maintain. Reserves are funds that are set aside over and above dollars needed to pay claims and run the business.

The Board also establishes and monitors all policies governing the conduct of our employees, officers and directors. These policies ensure that the corporation operates ethically and within the laws and regulations prescribed for us.

Our mission

BCBSNE exists to deliver the health and wellness solutions people value most.
