We support veteran, active military employees and their spouses across our company and across the country. You can work from anywhere - fully remote in one of our eligible states1, in the office or a hybrid of the two - so you may not need to relocate.

At Blue Cross NC, we are committed to empowering veterans as they embark on their career transition. By working with military transition offices and supporting agencies, our team can assist in several areas:
SkillBridge - Go from active duty to working veteran
Blue Cross NC is committed to the successful transition of our men and women in uniform. Working through the Department of Defense (DoD), we are a DoD SkillBridge industry partner and authorized provider of SkillBridge internships for service members completing their last 180 days of active duty.
This great program helps service members try out a career in an area that matches their interests for up to 6 months. Perks of the program include connecting with VetNet employee network members and getting a veteran mentor.
“Through the SkillBridge program, Blue Cross NC gave me meaningful training, mentorship, and purpose during my transition out of service. People across the company took time to help me have a smooth transfer from the military into a new career.”

VetNet: Our veteran-focused employee network
Employee networks bring people together. From our Technology Network for Women to our Young Professionals and LBGTQ+A, these networks help employees with shared interests, backgrounds and perspectives build community with each other.
Blue Cross NC is committed to serving those who have served us. The VetNet mission is to establish a professional network of our employees who share a common experience of service in uniform, or affiliation (in any way) to those who have experienced service in uniform.
Here's what you can do as a VetNet member:
• Build your professional network • Support better service to our veteran customers and communities • Get access to unique professional development opportunities • Gather for conversations with other veteran employees and senior leaders to share ideas and experiences • Help other veterans and their families through community outreach programs and special events

Blue Cross NC proudly supports veterans, military & their families
We help military veterans get the medical training they need work in civilian health care. The $1.2 Million investment in the Physician Assistant Studies Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill helped the grow the program from 40 to 100 students and improved access to primary care for many of our states rural areas.
Hugh Donohue, MD, COL(Ret.) US Army is a Medical Director at Blue Cross NC and Founder and Inaugural Chair of the company’s VetNet employee network. He has donated over three gallons of blood since he relocated to the Raleigh area in 2003. That number is impressive–and it reflects his firsthand knowledge of the lifesaving power of blood transfusions as an Army medic.
