A Message from the president

 

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) has served Texans for more than 80 years, providing health care coverage across the state’s 268,000 square miles. We’re Texas born and bred.

With more than 5 million members, BCBSTX is the state’s largest health insurer. We take our role as a customer-owned company seriously, understanding that it’s our job to be good stewards of our members’ health care dollars. At the end of the day, this mindset is the motivation behind everything we do.

When we are out in our communities, we make every effort to improve public health by educating our audiences on key health issues – from reducing health disparities to promoting healthy behaviors. We are also educating Texans on how to keep their health care affordable and best use their health care coverage. But we couldn’t do this without the support of our employee volunteers and our community partners. They are the individuals who are championing our educational message on the front lines, and I am so thankful that they selflessly share their time and talents. As you read this report, keep in mind that they are your neighbors, friends and family – Texans just like you.

Dr. Dan McCoy

President, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas
