At Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois your health, safety and well-being continues to be our top priority. We are closely monitoring activity around COVID-19, and assisting health care professionals, government agencies and public health organizations. We want to ensure our members and the greater community have access to the care and coverage they need.
Here are some things you should know:
COVID-19 is a new virus but has some of the same symptoms as a common cold or the flu. If you start to show symptoms — such as fever, cough or trouble breathing — call your doctor or urgent care center. They may be seeing patients by phone rather than in-person visits.
If you are struggling to breathe or have bluish lips or face, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
We’re here to help.
We understand that this can be a stressful time. I want you to know we are holding true to our purpose — to do everything in our power to stand with our members in sickness and in health.
Thank you for being a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois member.
Please take care of yourselves and others,
President, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois
