Blue Shield of California Promise Health Plan supports the goals of ACEs Aware, a partnership initiative by the California Surgeon General and the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to screen for childhood trauma and treat the impacts of toxic stress.

ACEs Aware offers provider resources and education on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), how to screen for ACEs, and a free, 2-hour online training that, upon completion, allows eligible providers to bill for ACEs screenings administered to pediatric and adult Medi-Cal members. Providers who complete and attest to taking the training may receive 2.0 Continuing Medical Education (CME) and 2.0 Maintenance of Certification (MOC) credits.
