Blue Cross Association Response Statement
In The Wake Of The Chauvin Verdict

April 21, 2021

We must remember Mr. Floyd and the change his death has spurred in the U.S. consciousness. We can only begin to heal as a nation if we act together to address systemic racism and injustice. We are committed to doing the hard work of moving forward where we can make a real impact. As part of our Pledge to Make Meaningful Change, Blue Cross Blue Shield companies just launched a National Health Equity Strategy. Our intent is to confront the nation’s crisis in racial heath disparities and reimagine a more equitable health care system, especially for people of color. Starting here and starting now, we can begin to put an end to the racial disparities in healthcare.
