Extraordinary time for health care
Blue Cross Blue Shield came out of the 1920s during a time when medical care was improving. With better care came more demand, as people started visiting hospitals more often. In 1938, the insurer came to Michigan, and by 1940, the group had more than 175,000.
Fast forward to 2014 where BCBS of Michigan became a nonprofit mutual company, meaning the assets must be used for nonprofit activity serving the members instead of assets being distributed to its members. Currently, the company provides PPO, HMO and health-saving accounts and serves 4.6 million members in Michigan.
