Getting the right information is vital, and the skills and resources of a trained healthcare professional such as a nurse can be one of the most effective ways to get the information you need. Sometimes you just need a quick answer to a health issue that doesn’t require immediate medical treatment or a physician visit. That’s why many Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies offer a 24-hour nurse line.
With a 24 hour nurse line, you can call 7 days a week, 365 days a year to ask basic health questions and address concerns such as:

- Medications and side effects
- Reliable self-care home treatments
