From CEO Dan Conrad: Optimism for better days ahead

A short history lesson from CEO Dan Conrad gives us hope we can get through this pandemic together. Hear his take on what we can do.

Expanded coverage for COVID-19

The following coverage will continue through the end of the nationwide COVID-19 public health emergency.


Vaccines

Emergency authorized use COVID-19 vaccines are free of charge for BCBSND members. The vaccines themselves are paid through U.S. tax dollars. The costs to administer the vaccines are paid by BCBSND, resulting in no out-of-pocket costs for members. Because of our commitment to vaccinating North Dakota, if federal subsidies end, BCBSND will step in and pay for the vaccine.
