Since 1946, BlueShield of Northeastern New York has served members throughout the Capital Region and Northeastern New York State. Today, we are focused on improving quality and outcomes through strengthened alliances with our members, providers and third-party partners.
At BlueShield, we believe that good health is much more than the absence of illness – it’s about creating vibrant and diverse communities where all people have opportunities to thrive. In support of these goals, we contribute significantly every year to organizations in health care, youth development and fitness, social services, arts and culture, literacy and community development. BlueShield employees also raise and donate several thousand dollars each year and give more than 1,000 hours in volunteer time.
