Supporting Members affected by wildfires

Wednesday, Jul 21, 2021

Pacific Blue Cross stands with the people of Lytton, BC and British Columbians around the province affected by the spread of wildfires.

The summer wildfires that have spread across British Columbia have been devastating for so many in our province. Our entire Pacific Blue Cross team wishes to extend our heartfelt condolences to the people of Lytton, BC who are mourning the loss of two residents and dealing with the devastating impacts of the fire that began on Wednesday June 30th. No words can appropriately capture how difficult this must be.

Pacific Blue Cross members who have been impacted by the current wildfire crisis across the province can be assured that we stand with them during this difficult time.

  • Members and plan sponsors can contact us if they need assistance to replace medical or dental supplies or devices that were lost due to the fires but are over their plan limits.
  • Members should contact their pharmacist about refilling medication if they were lost due to the fires.
  • Members should contact their dental providers about completing dental services that were interrupted due to the fires and may need to be completed by another dentist. Dentists can contact their association if they are unclear on the procedure for completing services or appliances that were previously started by another dentist for an individual impacted by the fires.

We encourage all Pacific Blue Cross members who have been impacted by the wildfires to visit their Member Profile for more information. Mental health support can always be found on our website.

We would also like to thank our province’s first responders working so hard for all British Columbians day-in and day-out, fighting approximately 200 fires throughout BC, doing all they can to keep us safe as well as those doing animal rescues in the regions.
