BlueCross Blue Shield of Texas


Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas knows health care coverage in Texas — they invented it. They’re Texas born and bred, and this is the only place they do business.

They have been around for more than 90 years, and the cross and shield have come to represent the most experienced health care coverage organization in the state and the nation. Their mission is still focused on providing financially sound health care coverage to as many Texans as possible.
