Freedom of choice to access one of California’s largest networks
Anthem Blue Cross PPO
With more than 50,000 physicians and 400 hospitals in its network, the Anthem Blue Cross PPO (Prudent Buyer Plan®) Plan allows members to easily find a physician, specialist or other health care professional to meet their health care needs.
Because of our extensive network discounts negotiated with our providers, members can receive significant cost savings and reduce their out-of-pocket expenses.
When members use a participating provider, they do not need to file a claim since these providers bill Anthem Blue Cross directly for services.
Our competitively priced PPO plans ensure accurate claims processing, cost-incentive member savings, convenient services and a multitude of plan designs.
With the BlueCard®
program, members who live and work outside of California have access to the same comprehensive benefits and negotiated discounts available to employees in California.
Through our affiliation with the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, Anthem Blue Cross can offer employers a national network of providers.
Anthem Blue Cross was awarded Full Accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for its PPO product. Anthem Blue Cross continues to be the only PPO in the state to be fully accredited and only one of 24 PPOs nationwide to receive an accreditation. Full Accreditation, which is the highest rating possible for PPO products, is granted to those plans that have programs for service and clinical quality that meet or exceed NCQA’s rigorous standards for consumer protection and quality improvement.
In addition to our full range of Anthem Blue Cross PPO Plans, we offer:
Anthem Blue Cross OnePlanSM PPO
Anthem Blue Cross OnePlan PPO answers employers’ demands for plans that are simple to administer and offer affordable choices for employers and employees. Our OnePlan PPO can be purchased in standard form only, offering members zero in-network deductible, access to our vast PPO network and a three-tier pharmacy benefit.
Anthem Blue Cross Premier PPO
Anthem Blue Cross’ Premier PPO plans offer richer benefits, including a zero calendar year deductible. In addition to richer benefits, plans are tailored to provide an easy transition for an employer whose company grows from small to large group parameters.
Anthem Blue Cross GenRx PPO
Anthem Blue Cross GenRx PPO plans are comprehensive plans with a generic-only drug benefit that keeps them more affordable. Members may still purchase brand-name drugs at Anthem Blue Cross-negotiated savings by presenting their membership cards at in-network pharmacies. Please note: Generic medications must meet the same FDA standards for quality, purity and effectiveness as brand-name drugs. For generic equivalents covered by this plan, see the Anthem Blue Cross Drug Formulary
