About BlueCross BlueShield TN
As Tennessee's largest health plan, we've been helping Tennesseans find their own unique paths to good health for nearly 70 years. More than that, we're your neighbors and friends – fellow Tennesseans with deep roots of caring tradition, a focused approach to physical, financial and community good health for today, and a bright outlook for an even healthier tomorrow.
Our mission is simple: peace of mind through better health.
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. Our 5,500 employees across the state have built our strong reputation for integrity, excellent service and community leadership.
But we are also part of the BlueCross BlueShield Association, a nationwide association of health care plans. 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.
