About BlueCross BlueShield TN
As Tennessee's largest health benefit plan company, we've been helping Tennesseans find their own unique paths to good health for over 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.
We’re an independent, locally governed health plan company – meaning we live and work right here in Tennessee alongside our business customers and plan members. 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.
