CareFirst to distribute care packages to COVID-19 vulnerable areas
CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield invested $1 million in the distribution of care packages including masks, hand sanitizer and no-touch tools for high-risk members in Maryland, the District of Columbia and northern Virginia. This initiative is one of several actions CareFirst is taking to provide ongoing coronavirus relief to the communities it serves.
As restaurants, shops, workplaces and other services reopen, CareFirst recognizes the importance of providing its members with resources that enhance their safety during the pandemic. To alleviate this concern, CareFirst will distribute over 100,000 care package items to its most vulnerable member populations including Medicaid members, individuals over 65-years-old, individuals under 65-years-old with underlying medical conditions and student health plans.
This announcement is part of CareFirst’s ongoing efforts to rapidly address the urgent needs people and communities continue to face as a result of COVID-19.
