Making an Impact

Leadership View

For more than 80 years, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) has been dedicated to helping our fellow New Mexicans lead healthier lives. We pride ourselves on being a true community partner. 

Our employees live our purpose to stand with our members — and all citizens of New Mexico — in sickness and in health. In addition to working tirelessly to help our members get access to the care and resources they need, our employees volunteer more than 10,000 hours every year and work with a variety of organizations in our community.

Every year, we donate more than $1 million in community grants and sponsorships and collaborate with more than 120 community organizations across the state. 

This includes our Healthy Kids, Healthy Families® grants for programs that focus on nutrition, physical activity, disease prevention and management, and supporting safe environments.

We are proud to be part of this community, and we look forward to continuing the work of addressing the health challenges facing our state and helping New Mexico be a healthier place to live, work and raise a family. Thank you for taking the time to read some of the stories behind our efforts.
