Florida Blue launched a24-hour, free emotional support helpline for all Floridians, in partnership with New Directions Behavioral Health. Any Floridian – even in uninsured or insured by another plan – can call 833-848-1762 for support in managing feelings of stress, anxiety, grief or fear related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Florida Blue is also making an initial investment of $2 million to address urgent and immediate health and safety needs in communities across Florida. The contributions will address food security for seniors and children, support for hourly workers, behavioral health needs and other crisis priorities in local communities.
In addition, Florida Blue is waiving out-of-pocket costs for members who need treatment for COVID-19.
