LiveLifeBlue℠ Awards Program

BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina created the LiveLifeBlue program to encourage fellow South Carolina employers to play an active role in promoting health and wellness. We believe that companies have a responsibility — and a powerful opportunity— to improve the well-being of the people at their company and in their community.
