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 Comp-Care you know your coverage will be recognized by health care providers from coast to coast and around the world.
You choose your health care.
When you need health care, you’ll choose the health care providers you want to see. You’ll have your choice of any doctor in our Blue Shield network. And that’s the largest network in Maine, with more than 90% of Maine’s doctors, including most specialists. You can also choose to see a provider outside the Blue Shield network, but you will have to pay more. The Benefit Overview you receive with your enrollment materials explains the costs.
Free from paperwork hassles.
With Comp-Care most doctors, hospitals and other providers will file claims for you automatically. This means you won’t need to pay your entire bill up front and wait for reimbursement.
Answers are a phone call away.
If you’re not sure whether you need care or where to get it, you can call our 24-hour nurse call line at 1-800-607-3262. You’ll be connected to a helpful registered nurse here in Maine, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Prescription drugs are hassle-free.
Your Comp-Care ID card is also your prescription drug card. It’s easy and convenient. You’ll find details on your prescription drug coverage in the Benefit Overview you receive with your enrollment materials.

| Age-appropriate screenings, such as mammograms, Pap tests, cholesterol checks and PSA tests. |
