You want healthcare that’s high-quality and affordable, and that’s what we’re working to deliver. Learn about what’s really driving healthcare costs—and what we’re doing to help address those costs.

Blue Cross is working to make healthcare more affordable by tackling the primary drivers of healthcare costs—and health insurance premiums.

There has been astounding growth in the cost of common medical services in recent years, which is driving up healthcare premiums. 

As more people turn to prescription drugs to help manage their health, the costs are rising rapidly. 

In Rhode Island, payments to hospitals continue to outpace inflation and account for more than one-third of Blue Cross members’ claims. 

We’re collaborating with local network hospitals to create and implement a new Hospital Quality Program to help improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of healthcare.
