Health is shaped by far more than what happens at your doctor’s office or hospital. Florida Blue recognizes the need for whole-person care including physical, mental and social health. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to health care, but rather holistic solutions tailored to the unique needs of individuals and communities.
We work closely with hundreds of trusted partners to break down barriers, reduce stigmas, address social determinants of health and identify factors that negatively impact the health of our communities. As we enhance our delivery of whole-person health, we’re continuing to address the need for greater affordability, accessibility and equity to advance better health outcomes and serve as a driving force for change and innovation in health care.

In Your Neighborhood
We’ve cared for the people and communities of Florida for more than 75 years. Our company is made up of people that genuinely care for those communities because they live, work and play in them — cheering for the local teams, volunteering at local nonprofits and engaging with neighbors at community celebrations.
Our local approach gives us a meaningful understanding of the many unique communities that make up our state and allows us to develop health solutions shaped for the distinctive needs of each one.
Whether you’re unsure how to find the right doctor, overwhelmed by a new diagnosis or facing personal struggles in caring for yourself or others, our local Florida Blue Centers have community specialists and neighborhood nurses who provide personalized guidance, coaching and support—in person, by phone or virtually.
The best way for us to support the communities we serve, is to partner with them. That’s why we listen to you and work together to find solutions to a number of challenges. By teaming up with our community partners, we hope to collectively make a long-lasting, positive impact on the health of neighborhoods all across Florida — including yours.
