Welcome from the President

In this unprecedented time of change for the health insurance industry, I am as proud and inspired as ever by the commitment of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma (BCBSOK) and our employees to the more than 750,000 members who rely on us to be there when they need us most. Our purpose is to do everything in our power to stand with our members in sickness and in health, and we work to fulfill that promise every day through our outstanding customer service, broad choice of products and work in the community. We also recognize our employees who exemplify our purpose and core values of integrity, respect, commitment and caring, as they carry out their daily job responsibilities and serve as the face of BCBSOK in the community.

As a local company, we have an opportunity – and a responsibility – to help improve the health of not only our members and employees, but of all Oklahomans. By working with like-minded organizations across the state we are able to tackle some of the most pressing health challenges, while also recognizing those who are serving as role models and mentors in helping Oklahomans improve their overall health.

We are proud of our work in 2013, and look forward to serving our neighbors in the year ahead. I encourage you to take a few minutes to review our Social Responsibility Report and see the many ways Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma is making a difference.

Ted Haynes
President, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma
