CHICAGO, Feb. 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — 2024 marks the 75th anniversary for BCS Financial, an insurance and financial services firm wholly owned by Blue Cross Blue Shield licensees and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.

Since its origins as the first national Blue company, BCS Financial has built a solid foundation that has expanded to commercial markets in all 50 states.

Most recently, BCS has made headlines for its new-to-market insurance solutions, including:

  • A reinsurance pool product for health plans that covers the cost of gene therapy ingredients to protect against large, catastrophic claims, and offers back-end management services; and
  • A gene-therapy-only stop loss product designed to protect large, self-insured employers from the frequency and severity of these one-time treatments
  • A first-of-its-kind critical illness insurance product that provides coverage for severe mental illness

“Our mission has been the same for 75 years – to serve our customers by solving tough problems that make a difference in their lives.”  said BCS President & Chief Executive Officer Peter Costello. “The problems today are tougher and more complicated then ever but we feel privileged to be working with our customers and stakeholders to solve them””
