Pacific Blue Cross is the only health benefits provider that’s based in BC, serving the people of BC—and we’ve been doing it for over 80 years. As an independent not-for-profit health benefits society, we have stakeholders—not shareholders. It’s an important distinction for us, because we reinvest in areas that do “more good” for our members where they live and work, through new products and services and support for organizations in communities all over BC.
