Blue Shield California Health Insurance

Blue Shield of California promotes the goal of universal coverage with an emphasis on shared responsibility and cost containment. Until this goal is reached, Blue Shield continues to support key safety net programs that address immediate healthcare needs.

One in five Californians has no health insurance.  That means 6.5 million people, three quarters of whom are full-time workers and their families. Research shows that those with health insurance are more likely to access health services in a timely fashion and to have better health outcomes compared to uninsured people.

Over the past five years, employer-sponsored health insurance premiums have increased by 73 percent. The increase in healthcare spending is growing at a faster rate than inflation.

Blue Shield of California envisions a future in which every Californian has access to affordable health insurance and efficient health services. Blue Shield of California believes health coverage for all is achievable in California when the government, businesses, and individuals share the financial burden of healthcare costs.

Blue Shield of California is committed the following goals:

  • Increase access to health coverage for all Californians

  • Strengthen the healthcare safety net to provide care for uninsured Californians

  • Serve as a catalyst for health reform that uses a shared responsibility approach

Blue Shield of California Foundation strives to address core problems that can dramatically improve outcomes in the next several years. By blending the best in applied research with comprehensive policy development, opinion leader outreach and support for community-based services, we help make innovative solutions take root in California today.
