New England Health Plans
Opening the doors to complete access
If you have employees here, there and everywhere, you know how hard it can be to cover everyone. Should an imaginary line stand in the way of access to doctors and hospitals? We don’t think so.
The New England Health Plans — a regional plan coalition unlike any other — lets your employees choose and use any Blue Cross and Blue Shield network doctor or hospital in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island or Vermont.
Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield has three plans that let you take advantage of this agreement. Read more about them right here:
Access Blue New England
– Our most comprehensive package with the most widespread access.
HMO Blue® New England
– A traditional plan that helps the family doctor guide care.
Blue Choice® New England
– Gives members the flexibility and control to decide where to receive care.
Members have more freedom
Maybe it’s old-fashioned, but we believe in flexibility and choice. What could be more flexible than giving people the freedom to see doctors or specialists throughout New England? The New England Health Plans open the doors to network providers in all six states. So whether they’re getting a heart checked in Hartford or having a baby in Boston, your employees can do it all in network.
Members choose their own doctor
With any of these plans, members choose a primary care physician (PCP) to help direct care. The PCP can be on the next street over or in the next state over, it doesn’t matter. So each employee can keep their relationship with a favorite, familiar doctor who knows his or her health history the best.
Second opinions? Not a problem. Each of the New England Health Plans allows members to see specialists throughout New England. In fact, with Access Blue New England and Blue Choice New England, they don’t even need a PCP referral. Talk about easy.
Members are covered across New England
Wherever your employees go, coverage is there. So all New England members can take advantage of the great health care options that the region is famous for without leaving the network. This includes world-renowned Boston hospitals, 28,000 doctors and 200 medical facilities. Basically, the biggest network around.
