  • Who we are

    We've been helping people stay healthy here since 1952, before Alaska was a state. Premera Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alaska is a not-for-profit independent licensee of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association. We're part of the Premera family of companies, which together serve nearly 2 million customers. From our office in Anchorage, our employees are here to help you get the most from your health benefits and provide the information and services you need.

    What we do

    Premera and its affiliate companies provide coverage for individuals, families and employers through health, dental, Medicare supplement, stop-loss benefits and related products and services. We're dedicated to helping Alaskans improve their health while ensuring they receive access to the highest quality and most affordable care possible. As medical costs rise, Premera continues to develop programs, tools and services to help our customers manage their own health. And we work closely with healthcare delivery organizations to help make quality care sustainable and affordable to all.
