The credit for the creation of Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina goes to George Lewis Smith, a priest, Roger Huntington, a businessman and George Buchanan, a journalist. All these three men had the common vision of providing non-profit and pre-paid hospital plan for the people of Palmetto State. Their plan got huge support from the community. The three lobbied in the General Assembly for the introduction of necessary legislation so that their dream project could be started. Finally, in 1946, the bill was passed for the project.

By the end of 1947, there were over 30,000 South Carolinians who became members of the pre-paid health care plan. By 1948, the company had a net income of $27,000.
