How to recognize quality

When you’re choosing a medical facility, performance counts. Many specialty care providers in the Anthem network have earned one (or more) of the quality awards below. Each award is only presented to facilities that pass a rigorous review of their processes and performance. Over and over, they’ve proven their expertise at delivering quality care. That could mean fewer complications, fewer readmissions and higher survival rates. Look for these awards as you weigh your health care options.
