The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association is an association of 36 independent, locally operated Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield companies.
Patrick Pope is Vice President and Deputy General Counsel, Strategic Counseling, 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.
Pope, who joined the Association in 2014, leads a team of attorneys, paralegals and staff who provide counsel on complex litigation, policy, operational and strategic issues impacting BCBSA and the Blue System.
For litigation, Pope manages a portfolio of matters that pose significant financial, operational and reputational risk to the Blue System, including antitrust, intellectual property, information and data security, HIPAA-related issues, human resources and commercial disputes. He also has primary responsibility for managing the nationwide antitrust class action litigation pending against BCBSA and each BCBS Plan.
On policy and operational matters, Pope advises BCBSA business teams and senior leadership on antitrust and other legal issues impacting BCBSA and the BCBS Plan programs across Commercial Markets, BlueCard, Office of Clinical Affairs and Strategic Services.
Prior to joining BCBSA, Pope served for over 12 years as an Assistant United States Attorney for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago, Illinois. At the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Pope held a number of supervisory positions, including Associate Chief of the Criminal Division, in which he provided guidance on significant case, program and management decisions across all sections of the office. In addition to his supervisory duties, he served as lead trial counsel on over 20 federal jury trials and supervised trial teams on many other complex matters.
Pope is a graduate of Stanford University and New York University School of Law.
