Date:6/24/2008

CHICAGO, June 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) today donated $25,000 to the American Red Cross for disaster recovery services in areas affected by the current floods, which include northern Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri.

"Our hearts go out to the thousands of people who have lost so much and whose lives have been displaced by the floods," Paul S. Boulis, BCBSIL president, said. "Nearly 1,200 Blue Cross employees live in or near flood zones throughout the state of Illinois and along the border in neighboring states, so we understand first-hand the flood's incredible impact on affected families and communities."

BCBSIL CareVan to help in area disaster recovery

Blue Cross also announced today that it plans to donate one of its three mobile CareVan clinics to the American Red Cross to assist in disaster recovery. The CareVan will be used to distribute cleaning supplies, food, and water in Adams, Hancock, and Pike Counties in Illinois. Red Cross will provide information about distribution dates, times, and locations.

"We have a long road ahead of us. Blue Cross is doing what it can to help the area recover as quickly as possible," Melody Shover, director, BCBSIL's Quincy Full Service Unit, said.

BCBSIL online patient clinical summaries help displaced providers care for

Members

In an effort to assist providers and members who may have been displaced by the floods, BCBSIL developed an online system that includes patient clinical summaries (PCS) for BCBSIL members.

The online PCS system provides concise histories of BCBSIL members' medical services through February of this year, including lab tests and prescriptions, along with a 'snapshot' of their medical histories. To access the PCS system, providers can call (800) 981-2768 during business hours. Members can call (800) 676-BLUE (2583) for assistance.
