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:

  • Your symptoms
  • Medications and side effects
  • Reliable self-care home treatments
  • Self-help and support groups
  • When to go to your doctor
  • When to go to the emergency room
  • Local physician and hospital resources
  • Wellness information

Best of all, the BCBS 24-hour nurse line is a free resource to BCBS members. It’s just one of the benefits the Blues offer to help improve access to high-quality and affordable healthcare, and one of the ways we’re helping to transform the healthcare system for the better.
