About Blue Cross Blue Shield
Blue Cross Blue Shield is a federation of global health insurance organizations around the globe. The company provides health insurance to over 100 million people in the USA.
Blue Cross was initially founded in 1929 by Justin Ford Kimball. It initially offered a range of health insurance plans, including hospital coverage plans for teachers. Blue Shield was first founded in 1939 in California. This insurance system was devised by lumber and mining camp employers as a way to provide medical insurance to workers. The two companies merged in 1982 to form the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.
The company headquarters are located at 225 North Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60601.
