Member Voice

It's simple really: a 2"x 3" card with rounded edges. Your name is on the front, along with codes and some other numbers to help us look up your benefits. The back of the card has phone numbers and websites to help you get the information you need, whenever you need it. All of this is pretty standard. Our card holds something more, though. The Blue Cross and Blue Shield in the left corner means that this card is anything but standard.  There are high expectations that come with having this card, expectations that have been built over the years by earning your trust. There is something more, too. It's that special feeling that comes with having a Blue Cross and Blue Shield card.  It's knowing that the people standing behind the Blue Cross and Blue Shield card will be here to guide you through times of change. We are different. We care. See for yourself.

Listen to our members' voices and see the Blue Cross and Blue Shield membership card at work.

Customer-Owned

Unlike some of the national, publicly traded health insurance companies, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas is customer-owned.

  • Our owners and customers are one and the same.
  • We can focus on our members' health and wellness.
  • Our long-term planning and investment strategies deliver more stability and consistency versus a quarterly report's bottom line.

Social Responsibility

We're a local company that believes that social responsibility is about being personal, dependable and accessible – so no matter which way life takes a turn, you can always turn to us. We know that it takes more than a one-time grant or service project to make a lasting difference in the community. We seek out, support, and partner with organizations that understand how to best meet the needs of their community and we help their programs succeed.

Health care in Texas and across America is changing rapidly. What isn't changing is Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas' dedication to "doing good" for the people we serve and the Texas communities that we too, call home.

A focus on our members' personal needs – rather than on transactions, sets us apart from other health care insurers. We empower our service staff to function as advocates for all of our members. Many health care insurers call service staff customer service representatives. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas service staff are called Customer Advocates. This is an important distinction. Customer Advocates take responsibility for helping our members navigate the health care insurance process, understand their benefits plan and take on much more than the traditional customer service representative. They truly serve as advocates to our members.

Customer Advocates:

  • Are evaluated based on call quality, not call volume
  • Step outside the typical call parameters to assist members
  • Provide guidance based on a member's personal situation and answer the "unasked" questions
  • Help members understand, navigate and use health and wellness programs and online tools
