Maven, Ginger, and LifeReferrals 24/7 Programs
Starting January 1, 2022, three new Blue Shield of California programs are available to small business groups:
As the leading virtual clinic for individuals planning, growing and raising families, the Maven Maternity Program offers on-demand coaching and educational telehealth appointments with specialists and coaches 24/7/365, along with personalized clinical content and community forums. Members get access to virtual care for pregnancy, postpartum, and returning to work after parental leave – which delivers better outcomes and reduced costs for employers.
Offered at no cost to small business clients on the Wellvolution platform, Ginger provides on-demand, confidential mental health support, coaching via text-based chats, and self-care activities from the privacy of a smartphone.
Available for both new and renewing groups, Blue Shield's LifeReferrals 24/7 program provides access to personal counseling, work/life productivity services, financial and legal services, and identity theft resolution to help members better manage their personal, family, and work issues — no copayment or extra cost.
