Economics of Health Care

At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois, we strive to provide affordable health care to all Illinois residents. As a consumer, it's important for you to know what your insurance pays for and what medical services and procedures actually cost.

With this in mind, we've created a new series, Economics of Health Care. Together, we can reduce the overall cost of health care and become better health care consumers.

Take a look inside the first Economics of Health Care brochure , "Identifying Health Care Costs," to find out how your health insurance premium dollars are being spent.
