Draft Medical Policies
BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee

BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee works to ensure that Medical Policies are developed in an open, collaborative manner with our providers. We invite you to submit comments during the development phase of our Medical Policies.

Medical policies are developed using an evidence-based evaluation process. The medical evidence used in this process comes from several sources, including independent medical technology review organizations, the peer reviewed medical literature, and expert opinions from BCBST network specialists. We especially welcome comments that include this type of information. All Medical Policies are reviewed and approved by a panel of BCBST Medical Directors as well as board certified network physicians before final adoption by the company.
