A place where everyone contributes

What does work at BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee look like? The phrase “well rounded” quickly comes to mind. That’s because our employees come from local communities as well as all corners of the world. You see, we don’t think of diversity as a mere policy. To us it’s also a strategy, one that allows us to better understand and communicate with a diverse society. And that gives us an extra edge in today’s health care environment.

Giving Back

Giving back to the communities we serve

Keeping our more than 3 million members healthy and secure is only part of our mission. Also at the heart of what we do lies our desire to give back to the communities we serve.

For instance, last year our foundation contributed more than $6 million to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital, Chattanooga Race for the Cure, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and more than 80 other Tennessee charities, health-related events and health research projects.

Plus, every day you’ll find our employees volunteering their own time — more than 6,000 hours alone in 2003 — to Adopt-a-School programs, The Food Bank, United Way and countless other efforts. Why do we do it? Because we believe doing good goes hand in hand with doing well.

Quality of Life

Where you can nurture a career — and a better life

We’re based in Chattanooga, Tenn., a place that publications like Parade Magazine and U.S. News & World Report call one of the most livable cities in the nation. Why? Because of its unique mix of natural scenic beauty and progressive urban development.

But that's just the beginning. You'll also find…

  • Arts, cultural and recreational activities that rival much bigger metropolitan areas
  • Easy commutes both in and out of downtown
  • A central location between Atlanta, Nashville, Knoxville and Birmingham
  • One of the lowest costs of living in the U.S.
  • Affordable housing

Plus, our regional locations around the state (and even one in New Jersey) echo many of those same comforts. For more information about the cities in which we have offices, click below.


If you're looking for a company where you can start your career - or continue growing it - this could be the ideal place for you. Our claims and customer service positions are perfect starting points for new employees. And those with more specialized skills will find openings, too, from entry-level jobs to positions in management and everything in between.
