BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee has long advocated for health care reform. We recognize people want and need affordable health insurance and the law helps expand coverage to thousands of our fellow Tennesseans. That’s a goal we believe in, and one we’ll continue to support by implementing the law in a manner that best benefits our members and the state.

We’ll also continue to work with parties on both sides of the aisle to change those parts of the law, such as the health insurance tax, that will raise premiums for our members and disrupt the market. And, working with policymakers and other Tennessee health care leaders, we’ll continue to push toward delivery system reforms and solutions that reduce costs and improve quality.
