BCBSTX Values LGBTQ Inclusion

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) stands by our core values of integrity, respect, commitment, caring and excellence. We work together with our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning/queer (LGBTQ) employees to better understand the health care needs of our LGBTQ members.

One of the many ways we support our LGBTQ employees and allies is through the Pride Alliance business resource group. This group is sponsored by senior leadership and supports diversity through:

  • Community service
  • Networking
  • Educational seminars
  • Mentoring
  • Employee cultural awareness
  • Supporting LGBTQ-focused community partners

  • BCBSTX is pleased to provide information and resources to our LGBTQ members, their families and decision makers through GLMA: Health Professionals Advancing LGBT Equality (previously known as the Gay & Lesbian Medical Association). GLMA is an online provider directory where you can search for primary care providers, specialists, therapists, dentists and other health care professionals that welcome LGBTQ individuals and families.
