Why are Medical Costs Rising?

Medical Trends that Affect the Cost of Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) Coverage

When it comes to medical costs, there’s good news and there’s bad news. The bad news is that many signs point to significantly higher health care costs in 2023, which typically translate into higher insurance costs. The good news is that BCBSND is laser-focused on examining medical cost trends and determining concentrated cost-management strategies to help keep health care affordable in North Dakota and beyond.

Like you, we want to ensure affordability, which is why our team thoroughly analyzes these trends to develop services that help contain costs. To support the work you do, we have gone a step further and created the 2022 Cost of Care Report. This report will help you understand the factors impacting health care costs and offer strategies to help mitigate those costs. 

We invite you to look at the report and contact us if you have questions at  prov.partners@bcbsnd.com.
