The Group, the largest health insurer in the Northwest/Intermountain region and an independent licensee of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, has created a corporate Foundation. The Foundation will partner with organizations driving significant change in healthcare delivery accessibility in Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and Washington State. The Foundation estimates it will contribute $2.5 million in its first year and $4 million after that to organizations addressing its three funding priorities: Building Healthier Communities; Transforming Health Care; and End-of-Life. Grants in the Building Healthier Communities category support innovative programs addressing core problems in the health care system. Transforming Health Care grants create an environment where consumers partner with physicians to make informed health care decisions. End-of-Life grants seek to transform how the end of life is approached within the health care system. Grants must be used to serve residents of Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and/or Washington State. Online letters of inquiry are being accepted now for Building Healthier Communities and Transforming Health Care programs. End-of-Life applications may be submitted beginning Sept. 1. Additional information is available online.
