The novel coronavirus (COVID-19): What you need to know
Blue Shield of California is closely monitoring the outbreak of respiratory illness caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

We are waiving all your costs for screening and testing for the coronavirus. This includes copays, coinsurance, and deductibles.

If you have a fever, feel short of breath, and have a cough, we suggest using a virtual option such as Teladoc or NurseHelp 24/7℠ before seeking in-person care. Blue Shield is covering costs for these services during the coronavirus outbreak.
