Blue Shield Gives $10 Million To Fight Domestic Violence

The Blue Shield of California Foundation has given just over $10 million in first-quarter grants to help fight domestic violence. The organization’s president and CEO, Peter Long, went on record to say that Blue Shield is investing in county health systems and community health centers. This will hopefully play important roles in allowing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to reach its full potential.

A large portion of the donated funds will concentrate on better healthcare options for domestic violence victims. The move is aimed to provide such assistance due to the fact the PPACA is just under a year away from implementation (January, 2014.) The fact that new compliance laws are constantly being implemented makes it difficult for medical centers to keep up.

Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield has received $150,000 in funds while the San Francisco Department of Public Health received $225,000. The total number of funds aimed to fight domestic violence has extended to $2,325,000.
