6. We Must Work to Fix Provisions That Will Increase Costs
BCBSA has long been committed to ensuring everyone has high quality, affordable healthcare coverage.

On behalf of our 100 million members, Blue companies will continue to lead efforts in their local communities – partnering with doctors, nurses, hospitals and others – to rein in costs, improve quality, help people stay well and better manage their care when they need it.
