BCBSM held its annual supplier diversity achievement awards on March 13, 2019, at the Whitmer Auditorium in Detroit.
The award is presented to a woman-business enterprise that provides outstanding customer service, keeps Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan informed of industry trends and developments, brings forth cost savings ideas, and aligns to Blue Cross’ goals and objectives.
While MichBusiness and BCBSM have had a decades-long collaborative partnership, the benefits to members increased last year as the organization was certified as a Women-Owned Business. Together, Blue Cross and MichBusiness have created and successfully launched a Woman Business Enterprise health insurance program that provides an added benefit to their corporate members who report diversity spend to their customers.
“We are honored to receive this award from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan,” said MichBusiness President and CEO Jennifer Kluge. “In today’s rapidly changing world of health insurance, we’ve had to stay nimble in order to serve our membership” added Kluge, “and this award validates our strategic direction.”
