Company History and Profile
For more than 65 years, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee has been focused on the health and well-being of Tennesseans. Today, we serve 3 million members in Tennessee and across the country. We’re an independent, not-for-profit, locally governed health plan company – meaning we live and work alongside our Tennessee business customers and plan members. But we are also part of the BlueCross BlueShield Association, a nationwide association of health care plans. Because of this, our plan members have access to the same quality health benefits while traveling or living out-of-state that they have while in Tennessee.
Mission and Vision
The mission of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee is to provide peace of mind to our customers and communities through affordable solutions for health and healing, life and living. Our vision is to be the preferred, leading health solutions company, recognized for delivering value and improving the health and quality of life for the people we serve.
BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee and Health Care Reform
Since health care reform was signed into law two years ago, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee has been working to implement its provisions. We immediately created an office of health care reform to help interpret the law and coordinate our work to make needed operational changes. Our goal continues to be making health care reform work well for our members and the many others it is intended to serve.
