PW_004490
Blue ChoiceSM PPO puts you in charge of your own health care. You’ll get the care you need when you’re ill or injured, from the doctors and hospitals you choose from our BlueChoice PPO network. All with no-hassle Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield service. Sound like a good deal? 
The most recognized name in health coverage.
Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is continuing the great Blue Cross and Blue Shield tradition in Maine. With Blue Choice PPO you know your coverage will be recognized by health care providers from coast to coast and around the world. 
Health care you choose.
When you need health care, you’ll choose from our broad network of doctors and other health care providers. When you receive care from a Blue Choice PPO provider, you’ll enjoy the highest level of benefits at the lowest possible cost to you. Whenever you prefer, you can also choose care outside the Blue Choice PPO network and pay more. The Benefit Overview you receive with your enrollment materials explains the costs. 
Away from home, you’re covered.
If you’re traveling and you need emergency care, get it. You’ll be covered at the highest level of benefits. 
Away at school? They’re covered.
When they’re ill or injured, covered children who attend school away from home should get care from their campus clinic or from a local doctor or hospital. For maximum benefits, just send us a claim, noting that the care was for a child away at school. 
Prescription drugs are hassle-free.
Your Blue Choice PPO ID card is also your prescription drug card. Just show your ID card at almost every pharmacy in Maine, including all of the chains, and most pharmacies nationwide. Pay your copayment, and you’re on your way—no claims to file. 
Healthy preventive care.
With Blue Choice PPO your preventive care benefits may include:  
Screenings appropriate for your age, such as mammograms, Pap tests and cholesterol checks.
Immunizations for children up to age 8.
Educational programs for people with asthma, diabetes or heart disease.
An effective program that will help you quit smoking.
 
See the Benefit Overview you receive with your enrollment materials for details.
