Company Profile

Our History and Purpose

For more than 65 years, BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee has been centered 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. And we are also part of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, a nationwide association of independent Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans, which allows our plan members access to the same quality health benefits in all 50 states. 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.

Guiding Principles

BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee values and promotes integrity, honesty and ethics. Through a comprehensive set of principles and guidelines, we continually work to achieve the highest levels of industry standards for business practices, confidentiality, compliance and professionalism. Each code of conduct guideline reflects the high standards employees must meet each day.
