What’s New and Changing for 2022

Blue Shield of California will replace Aetna 

Blue Shield of California is a best-in-class medical carrier that gives you access to the largest medical and vision networks in California. It’s likely that your doctor, pharmacy, and hospital already participate in their network. Here’s how to check. [link to Find a Doctor section]
