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.
