About Noridian Mutual Insurance Company
Noridian Mutual Insurance Company is the licensed Blue Cross and Blue Shield plan in North Dakota. Started as separate pre-paid healthcare plans for hospital and physician services, it merged the companies in 1986 as Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota. In 1998 the company restructured as a nonprofit mutual insurance company owned by its policyholders. Noridian has been innovative in its approach to expanding its offering of products and services. It has entered into several joint ventures and administrative contracts and has created subsidiary companies to offer a full range of employee benefit products and services. Although the company continues to do business in North Dakota as Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (http://www.BCBSND.com), its Medicare operations (http://www.noridianmedicare.com) continue to grow. As a result, Noridian Mutual is currently working to reorganize this division as a limited liability company and a wholly owned subsidiary.
