What We Believe
At BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, we believe in and support health care reform. We also believe:
Separately, each of these efforts has the potential to greatly reduce costs. Taken together, they will deliver tremendous value. Meaningful change on this scale will only come from broad public-private collaboration, grounded in a shared sense of urgency.
BlueCross is committed to working with all parties – the U.S. Congress, the Obama Administration and other health industry stakeholders to transform health care – and make it work better for every American.
The health insurance industry has already taken concrete steps for improving care and reducing costs, which include a pledge to simplify administration of coverage as part of a 10-year commitment to save $2 trillion.
