Datapoint: Blue Shield of California Provides GED Support to Medicaid Members

Blue Shield of California’s Promise Health Plan is launching a no-cost service to help its Medicaid members obtain a GED. Offered via GEDWorks’ online platform, members can access study materials in English and Spanish, one-on-one tutoring, practice tests and personal advisors. “Lack of education is a barrier for many people trying to achieve economic, physical, and mental wellbeing,” Jennifer Schirmer, vice president of Blue Shield Promise, said in a statement. “Removing that barrier can change lives. Education not only opens the door to employment opportunities, it gives people the tools to better understand how to be an active partner in their health.” The insurer currently serves 149,580 California Medicaid beneficiaries.
