Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina (BCBSSC) is an independent licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.[2]

History[edit]

BCBSSC began as the South Carolina Hospital Service Plan when the General Assembly passed legislation bringing this group into existence. In the spring of 1947, the South Carolina Hospital Service Plan merged with the Hospital Benefit Association of Greenville, giving them a financial base.[3]
