Purpose of the Board

The Health Endowment Fund was created through passage of Public Act 4 of 2013. The Board was established as a result of the new law creating the nonprofit Health Care Corporation Reform Act, which authorizes certain changes on how Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan operates in this state. The new law requires Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan to contribute up to $1.56 billion over 18 years to a new Health Endowment Fund. The Fund’s purpose is to support efforts to improve the quality of health care while reducing costs and to benefit the health and wellness through funding of programs for minor children and seniors throughout the state with a significant focus on infant mortality, wellness and fitness programs, access to healthy food, technology enhancements, health related transportation needs and foodborne illness prevention.

Approved minutes from previous Board Meetings can be found on this website or at the Health Fund’s Brighton office: 7927 Nemco Way, Suite 270, Brighton, MI 48116

 

These endeavors will illuminate successful strategies and practices, helping grantees become more effective and guiding future funding for maximum impact.
