Community Impact

    BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee’s mission is simple: peace of mind through better health. That means peace of mind for our customers and communities, and for Tennessee. We support that mission through collaborations with community, civic and economic partners. Our three main channels for community support are:

    • BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation
    • BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Community Trust
    • Team Blue
