Welcome to the Empire BlueCross BlueShield blog.

Here you’ll find helpful information about low-income health care and tips to improve your overall health and wellness.

SafeLink keeps you connected

Having access to a wireless plan is important, especially during emergencies. Empire BlueCross BlueShield HealthPlus makes it easy for you to keep in touch with family, friends and even your primary care provider (PCP) through a partnership with SAFELINK WIRELESS.

With SAFELINK HEALTH SOLUTIONS®, you receive:

  • A free smartphone, 3GB of data and 350 monthly minutes.
  • Unlimited text messages with health tips and reminders.
  • Free calls to Empire Member Services that do not count toward your 350 minutes.

This benefit is offered free to you!

Unused minutes and data do not carry over from month to month. A month equals 30 days.

If you already have a cellphone, you can use it with your new SafeLink plan. Simply request a new SIM card for your current phone by calling 877-631-2550.

To use your own phone, you must have a compatible Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) phone, which includes T-Mobile and AT&T phones. Your phone must also be unlocked. Several other carriers also use GSM networks. To confirm yours does, call your carrier.

Get started today!

SafeLink’s wireless plan offers you peace of mind that you are just a call away from your family, Empire and your PCP when you need them.
