Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama says it is laying off four percent of its work force because of the downturn in the economy.

The company said Thursday the 151 job cuts would be mostly in the Birmingham area where most of its 3,800 statewide employees work.

The company offered early retirement to employees earlier this year and some took that option last month.
