New Medicaid Expansion Partnership

Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) is partnering with Arkos Health to expand our existing care management capabilities and elevate well-being in North Dakota. The new partnership and enhanced services will launch this fall. Arkos is a population health management company that works collaboratively with health insurers and a member’s primary care team to help provide supplemental coordinated care to Medicaid Expansion members at no additional cost. Examples of how Arkos may support Medicaid Expansion include:

  • Engaging with members after a hospital stay by ensuring they’ve filled their prescribed medications and made necessary follow-up visits with their primary care provider
  • Helping members know where to go for care
  • Assessing and coordinating community resources
  • Helping patients comply with their prescribed treatment plan

This added support is all about meeting members where they are at and closing gaps where they may otherwise fall through the cracks. As we continue to develop the program here in North Dakota, we will be sure to keep you updated. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Provider Relations Partner or by emailing
