Downers Grove, IL – In the outcome of a highly competitive selection process, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) has identified Upp Technology as a preferred IT Project and Staff Augmentation partner. The BCBSA provides multi-level support for 39 national BCBS healthcare plans, coordinating all initiatives in over 165 countries and territories throughout the world. Upp Technology currently holds the distinction of being one, of a selective few preferred vendors, whose services are made available to all BCBS plans.
