Providing health and wellness plans, programs and services on a viable, not-for-profit basis for the financial protection and well-being of our communities.
Who we are
Alberta Blue Cross® is the largest benefits provider in Alberta and one of the largest in Western Canada. We serve more than 1.8 million members with coverage through small and large employer group plans, individual plans and government-sponsored programs. For more than 70 years, we have been recognized as an organization who delivers quality service and competitive benefits while keeping our customers at the heart of every interaction.
As an Alberta-based, not-for-profit organization, we believe we have the responsibility to empower people to live their best life. We believe all communities should thrive. And, we are committed to promoting the health and wellness of Albertans.
Alberta-based and Alberta-grown, we are an independent, not-for-profit organization. Because we're not-for-profit, we have no built-in profit margins. Any financial surplus we generate is reinvested for the current and future benefit of our customers, meaning we can deliver outstanding value on our complete line of superior products and services.

National and international connections
We are also connected nationally and internationally to other not-for-profit plans. Our strong Canada-wide connections put us in the right position to serve national organizations.
We're licensed by the Canadian Association of Blue Cross Plans which means we meet their standards and submit to annual reviews. We also have a working relationship with the American Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association and their member companies. In 2016, Leger ranked Blue Cross® as Canada’s number one health benefits provider in the insurance sector and it is also one of the top 100 brands in Canada. These rankings are based on corporate citizenship, quality, honesty and transparency.
World-wide, we belong to the International Federation of Health Plans, which promotes non-profit health plans and has members in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.
