Blue Cross and Blue Shield
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming (BCBSWY) began its journey in
the 1940s as two separate pre-paid health care plans for hospital
and physician services. In 1976, the two companies merged with each
other and adopted the name Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming. The
company at present serves more than 100,000 residents of Wyoming.
BCBSWY employs over 200 people across the state, contributing to
each and every community in which it has a presence. It actively
takes part in community activities benefiting charities, community
service organizations and individuals as well. The company organized
the Caring Foundation of Wyoming in 1990 to provide basic health
care services to uninsured children. This nonprofit corporation
has given a healthy start in life for over 2,500 children since
