Our History

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield (CareFirst) is one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit healthcare organizations with headquarters in Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland. We have served communities in the Mid-Atlantic region for generations, and we’re still committed to improving the health and lives of our 3.5 million members across Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia.

We began as a simple health insurance company, but we've grown to be a true partner in health to our members, providers and communities.
