Blue Shield of California was established in 1939 and headquartered located in San Francisco; Blue Shield is a not for profit corporation with approximately 4,500 employees and more than 20 offices throughout California. Blue Shield of California's 60 plus year history is distinguished by innovations that have changed the face of health care and made them a prominent force in the California healthcare market. Blue Shield awarded San Francisco Chamber of Commerce's Excellence in Business Award for its strong growth, string of excellent ratings, innovative products, policy leadership and investments in people and communities.
Blue Shield also has offices in Chico, Fresno, Folsom, Irvine, Gold River, Lodi, Hemet, Orange, Monterey Park, Redding, Petaluma, Sacramento, Riverside, San Jose, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Walnut Creek and Woodland. Blue Shield of California Foundation is committed to making health care effective, safe and accessible for all Californians, particularly underserved people, and to ending domestic violence.

Blue Shield of California, one of the largest healthcare foundations in the state, serves as a bridge between the public, private and nonprofit sectors. The Foundation strives to address core social and health problems in ways that can dramatically improve the well-being of Californians 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.

Working in strategic partnerships they help provide care for low-income people while developing viable, long-term policies to improve the health and safety of all Californians. With annual grants of nearly $30 million, their support extends from primary medical services to groundbreaking research and technology projects. They are the largest private funder of domestic violence prevention programs in California.

Today, one in five Californians lacks health insurance. While basic health needs go unmet, they pay more for an inefficient, crisis driven health system. BSCF recognizes the urgent need to test real world approaches that can help reinvent health care. The vibrancy of their communities and their economy hinges on how well they manage health services in the years ahead.

As a not-for-profit health plan, Blue Shield is guided by our mission and values, which encourage innovation and enable them to be a catalyst for constructive change. Their mission and values are embodied in their proposal to guarantee health coverage for all Californians, the first time a major health plan has called for universal coverage.
