Blue Promise

The information provided by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas Is beyond what I would have expected from their podcast! I feel like they really care about the health and wellness of Texas communities beyond their customers. Thanks for the great information!

Solid content

I’m pleasantly surprised to see an insurance company going to the effort of sharing insights via podcast. They’ve got strong and consistent content that focuses on some important basics. It also digs deeper into topics that the general public is not educated on (but they should be - and now they can). Good host.
