Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield has added a group of walk-in centers to its network of providers supporting Anthem's product offerings. The addition of these participating walk-in centers gives you more options than ever when it comes to accessing in-network benefits. And, if you understand your choices and are comfortable with them, you can maximize your benefits.
Unlike going to a non-participating doctor in a participating group practice, if you go to a participating walk-in center, you can see any physician there and receive in-network benefits for covered services. You do not need referrals to use participating walk-in centers. Using the centers helps reduce your out-of-pocket costs and overall claims expense, because your copayments and provider charges are less for treatment here than at urgent care centers or emergency rooms.
Walk-in center coverage does not apply to members with BlueCare Family Plan (HUSKY A and B).
