2021 Annual Report
2021 marked the 20th year since the founding of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation. When the BCBSMA Foundation was created in 2001, we had a clear mission and goal—to expand access to health insurance for the lowest income residents of Massachusetts. At that time almost 7% of Massachusetts residents (or 500,000 individuals) were without health insurance. Over the last twenty years, as we’ve made significant progress toward our coverage goal, our understanding of the issue has grown.
