At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC), we believe in promoting the full health and well-being of our members. Smarter, better health care isn’t confined to the doctor’s office – it extends to homes and workplaces, too.
As behavioral health conditions continue to rise in today’s workforce, the need to broaden our approach to care by treating the whole person is more important than ever. Our full-scale solutions like care management, behavioral health integration and data-driven engagement programs help your employees spur and sustain a healthier lifestyle.
Tailored solutions are another way we’re changing health care to work better for you and your employees.
- Whole-person lifestyle engagement: Inspire employees by offering health and well-being programs with targeted communications, promotional materials and employer resources helping employees make smart choices in their daily lives.

- Behavioral health integration: Support holistic health — and lower total cost of care — by integrating behavioral and medical health care.
- Data-driven innovation: Get a clear picture of your population’s health and risk factors, recommendations for solutions based on your goals and reporting tools to monitor the impact.

Infographic: Battling Burnout
Battling burnout begins with understanding it’s not a self-care issue, but rather an organizational problem. Check out some dos and don'ts that can help tackle burnout among your workforce.
Over and over, I have heard the complaint from friends: They have insurance but can’t find a therapist or psychiatrist. Everyone they call is full. With the weight of their depression or anxiety making it difficult to initiate activity, they face the additional barrier of lack of appointment availability.
Nora Dennis, MD MSPH | Lead Medical Director for Behavioral Health at Blue Cross NC
As a Registered Nurse, I have worked directly with patients. This experience has given me a unique insight into some of the problems facing our health care system. One critical issue the health care industry needs to address is the disparity in accessing behavioral health care among minority groups. Why, in a time when our society is working to close the gaps in income, housing and education, is behavioral health lagging behind?
Angela Lynn | Director of Care Management at Blue Cross NC
Perhaps more than any other industry, health care represents the collision of humanity and technology — nothing is more personal than our health care. Blue Cross NC is working to provide a more simplified health care experience for our members. By combining technology and human interaction, we’re helping members find the right resources for their care journeys.
As health care costs continue to rise, people are forced to make hard decisions — like rationing medication, delaying care or choosing between medicine and groceries. These are decisions no one should have to make. That’s why the work Blue Cross NC is doing to make care more affordable has never been more important.
