For generations, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield has strived to provide its members with reliable, quality health coverage. We’ve gained a lot of experience over the years, and this has helped us build a reputation that millions of people trust.
Blue Access is a preferred provider organization (PPO) that gives members both freedom and security.
With Blue Access, members enjoy a health care benefit plan with a network of some of the area’s best physicians. And when members receive care from one of Anthem’s network physicians, they pay less out of your pocket and Anthem covers more.
Network Physicians Make Life Easier
While members have the freedom to choose a network or a non-network physician, we hope they will establish a long-term relationship with a physician. Working with network physicians can offer:
more effective health care coordination
a potential cost savings
less paperwork hassle
If member see non-network physicians, they must first obtain precertification by calling the Anthem Precertification Center for certain services (one exception is emergency care). Otherwise, members may have a greater financial responsibility or the services may not be covered. Members are also responsible for claims filing anytime they see non-network physicians.
