About Blue Cross
For more than 80 years, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota has worked to improve the health of all Minnesotans. As a nonprofit organization, we have a long history of making a healthy difference in people's lives and of giving back to the communities we serve. In particular, our industry:leading commitment to veterans, service members and their families helped us to be named the first and only Beyond the Yellow Ribbon health plan company in Minnesota.
We make it easy for you to support veterans groups and other community organizations by providing 20 hours of volunteer paid time off each year - in addition to regular paid time off. The dedication of Blue Cross volunteers has earned us recognition for running one of the most successful corporate food drives in the state; donating nearly 1,500 volunteer hours at Habitat for Humanity worksites; and growing more than 750 pounds of fresh produce at our onsite Community Giving Gardens. Find your place at a company that cares about veterans, our employees, our members and our communities.
