Blue Cross – celebrating 75 years of insurance expertise!
In 1942 Blue Cross was born. Québec had no social safety net at that time and the Canassurance Hospital Service Association was founded to provide employers with a contingency plan to cover their workers’ medical expenses. The plan was named Blue Cross.
In 2017, our supplementary health insurance solutions and travel insurance plans are just as important for the health, well-being and financial security of Quebeckers. Here’s a look back on our 75 years of leadership.
