Donor Spotlight:  Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL)

January’s Donor Spotlight features Illinois’ largest health insurance provider and Thresholds partner, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL).

BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois, a valued partner of Thresholds

In 2014, Thresholds and BCBSIL began a partnership to significantly expand care coordination to individuals insured through BCBSIL. Thresholds’ 25 care coordinators provide telephonic and in-person follow up care to BCBSIL enrollees throughout nine Illinois counties. In 2015, our care coordinators completed 1,638 comprehensive health risk assessments for 3,000 enrollees. BCBSIL’s dedication to achieving better health outcomes for individuals with mental illnesses is truly inspiring and we are privileged to be a part of such a transformative service for thousands of Illinois residents.

BCBSIL was a crucial partner in starting the Thresholds Veterans Project five years ago. Their generous support of the Veterans Project has been instrumental to its success, without which it would not be considered one of the nation’s premiere veteran service programs. BCBSIL has also sponsored several Thresholds events, with total giving to the agency reaching over $200,000 since 2008. We deeply appreciate BCBSIL’s commitment to supporting Thresholds members on their path towards recovery and self-sufficiency.
