About Blue Shield
Because Blue Shield is a not-for-profit health plan, our focus is on you—not shareholders. Since our founding by a group of physicians in 1939, we have built a tradition of strength and stability and today serve 3.3 million individuals.

Our commitment to being socially responsible is demonstrated by our annual $30 million in contributions to the Blue Shield of California Foundation, which funds nonprofit organizations that improve access to quality health care.
