CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Amber Cambron has been named president and CEO of BlueCare Tennessee, the Medicaid managed care subsidiary of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.
Cambron succeeds Scott Pierce, who has been appointed senior vice president for government programs, and assumes strategic leadership of all BlueCross’ participation in government programs. Currently that participation includes Medicaid managed care and Medicare Advantage products.
“Amber is uniquely well prepared to lead BlueCare Tennessee,” Pierce said. “She has been a leader in the company since it was founded 20 years ago, and knows its operations and opportunities as well as any chief executive could.”
Cambron joined BlueCare in 1993 as a claims supervisor and has steadily taken on more responsibility, including serving as chief operating officer for two years prior to her current promotion.
BlueCare Tennessee serves nearly a half million members as a managed care contractor with the state’s TennCare program. BlueCare has been a TennCare contractor since the program began and last year was awarded a new contract to continue that relationship.
