Why Blue Shield?

Our mission is to provide access to high-quality health coverage worthy of our families and friends.

This mission drives everything we do. It’s why we’re working to change the trajectory of health care for the better: better solutions, better value for your healthcare dollar, and a better experience for employees. Health Reimagined is our leading effort to innovate systemic change to improve access to care while driving down costs and inefficiencies.

We also meet members where they are with our strong California provider networks. We currently cover over 4.65 million members, in one of the most diverse populations in the world. Our BlueCard® National Network offers over 1.7M providers nationwide.

From earning industry accreditations to developing new programs, we want to help ensure that Blue Shield members receive care and service that meets or exceeds high quality standards.
