I recently had to do the run-around trying to get the number for the 24-hour nurse advice line for Federal Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS). I believe the number may be different for different divisions of BCBS, and you have to be a BCBS customer in order to talk to the nurse. I had to register for Blue Health connection and all this other nonsense when all I wanted was to call the nurse as soon as possible.

In order to help others, I’m posting the number here. I do not endorse Blue Cross Blue Shield in any way, nor guarantee the medical advice you may receive from the nurse on call. You take full legal responsibility if you call this number.

The number listed on the Blue Health Connection website for Federal BCBS is 1-888-258-3432.
