OUR COMPANY

Not for profit. For our communities.

We're more than just an insurer. Employees from all over Tennessee have built our company for nearly 75 years. And we wouldn't be living our mission if we didn't give back to our great communities in meaningful ways.

Our beliefs & mission

Our mission is providing peace of mind through better health. And as a tax-paying not-for-profit based right here in Tennessee, that means we're serving our family members, friends and neighbors – not shareholders.

But it's not good enough for us to just say it – here's what we do to bring our mission to life:

Taxpaying not-for-profit

Unlike most nonprofits, we pay local, state and federal taxes – which totaled $427 million in 2017. Being based here in Tennessee means we help pay for schools, law enforcement, parks, infrastructure and many other services that help make our state a great place to live.

A mission to serve

We're here to provide more than health plans. We're dedicated to providing a higher level of service. That's why we've spent nearly 75 years partnering with the best health care providers to make sure you and your family can expect quality, affordable care.

Giving back

As the largest insurer in Tennessee, we're proud to give back through charitable donations, scholarships and much more. You'll also find our people donating their time to great causes statewide.
