Ethics at Blue Cross NC
Blue Cross NC is committed to conducting our business dealings with honesty, integrity and fairness.

Ethisphere Institute reviewed nominations from companies in more than 100 countries and 36 industries.

The Blue Cross NC Code of Conduct provides important guidelines for ethical and lawful conduct for every employee and member of our Board of Trustees. It puts our values into action. And it is more than a set of rules; it contains the principles we work by and is a guide to help us make the right decisions every day.
