Founded in 1944 as part of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Hampshire and Vermont, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont split from the New Hampshire Plan in the early 1980s and began building its own infrastructure. Quickly growing from a company with about fifty employees, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont now employs over 300 dedicated Vermonters and is the health care financing mechanism of choice for the majority of Vermont citizens.

We are the state's only Vermont-based health coverage carrier; we are by far the largest; and well before health care reform became a national priority, we were offering high quality health coverage to all Vermonters, regardless of age, occupation or the condition of their health.
We have been the primary financing mechanism that enabled the state's hospitals and physicians to build one of the finest and most efficient health care delivery systems in the nation.
We also are widely recognized as a good corporate citizen, as the company and its employees support a wide range of worthy health-related projects across the state.
The people who work for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont are proud of what we do and continually strive to be the very best that we can be. We take pride in the fact that our customer satisfaction ratings are among the very best in the business, and our premium costs for comparable coverage are among the lowest.
Our commitment is to do everything possible to keep improving the positive relationships between Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont, its members, employer groups and providers of health care services.
