Helping Members Impacted by Natural Disasters

  • We're in your corner

    Our hearts reach out to the thousands of people impacted by recent wildfires and hurricane.

    Although miles separate us, the effects of the devastating natural disaster are far reaching.

    We encourage our customers and their families who are impacted by the disaster to call us at 800-722-1471 if they have any questions about their health care coverage. Our customer service representatives are skilled in answering questions related to replacing lost and damaged medications or finding care.

    Premera customers in need of non-emergency care may call our 24-Hour NurseLine. This free service can help individuals decide the best place for care, and provide information on local resources. The phone number for the 24-Hour NurseLine is on the back of your ID card.

    Premera's telehealth provider, Teladoc®, is also offering access to general medical care at no charge for residents impacted by the disasters. To receive care by phone, affected individuals should call the designated hotline.
