We’re fighting for children’s health

Important news about our contract with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota

We face the real possibility that Children’s Minnesota could be effectively forced out of Blue Cross’ insurance coverage network on July 5, 2017.

The Issue

Blue Cross is demanding impossible cuts in the rates we are paid to treat the children insured by them, especially those whose families rely on Medicaid. Accepting Blue Cross’ demand would threaten the long-term viability of Children’s, and would eventually force us to eliminate services and programs that save kids’ lives.


We deliver complex, lifesaving care that simply can’t be matched by other local healthcare providers. Instead of giving in to Blue Cross’ demand and triggering a long, downward spiral for Children’s, we have chosen to stand up and fight for the kids who count on us to be there for them.

We’re fighting, and we need your help.
