The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association is an association of 36 independent, locally operated Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield companies.
John Cerisano is vice president, Federal Relations for the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association (BCBSA), a national federation of 36 independent, community-based and locally operated Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies. The Blue System is the nation's largest health insurer covering one-in-three of all Americans. It is the largest single processor of Medicare claims in the nation and holds the world's largest privately underwritten health insurance contract — the 5.4 million-member Federal Employee Program (FEP).
John began his career in 1987 on Capitol Hill with legislative responsibilities in several areas, including healthcare. After 10 years on Capitol Hill, John transitioned to the private sector joining BCBSA’s Federal Relations team in 1997. John has served in multiple capacities over the years and now leads Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s lobbying team as Vice President of Federal Relations.
John is part of BCBSA’s leadership team charged with shaping national health policy – directly lobbying Members of Congress and their staffs, meeting with senior Administration officials, activating Blue Plans nation-wide, representing the Blues in Congressional hearings, and building coalitions that unify national, state, and local healthcare business organizations toward a common goal. John has played a lead role in several legislative areas, including the Patients’ Bill of Rights, association health plans, genetic non-discrimination, Medicare Advantage, generic drugs, and most recently the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and small group legislation.
Prior to joining the Association, John held a senior position in the Office of Senator Phil Gramm (R-TX), managing his legislative priorities in several areas, including health care. John served in this position during several periods of significant legislative activity, including the 1993 and 1994 healthcare debate, 1996 welfare reform and HIPAA, and the Balanced Budget Act of 1997. Prior to joining Senator Gramm’s team in 1989, John served in the office of a Member of Congress from Virginia and in the office of a Member of the British House of Commons.
John received his BA in political science from Virginia Tech in 1988.
John is a native of Virginia, where he currently resides with his family.
