BenefitPackages.com, a leading health insurance agency in California reveals how Anthem Blue Cross will no longer offer health plans for 16 of 19 of Covered California regions starting in 2018.
About 153,000 policy-holders will be affected in California. Los Angeles being one of the main regions.
“If you live in California and have an Anthem Individual Family plan, your coverage will most likely end this year,” said Larry Hurwitz, President of BenefitPackages. “Ensure you maintain your benefits by reaching out to an agent at BenefitPackages.com to go over your plan.”
Anthem members who are currently holding policies through Covered California and don’t proactively make a carrier and plan change will be automatically migrated into the cheapest plan through other carriers at the same metal tier. Whether a policy holder has a PPO or HMO, it will not be taken into consideration. For example, if a member has a Silver Anthem 70 EPO plan, they will be migrated into the Silver 70 HMO plan if that is the cheapest available Silver plan.
If a policy holder is enrolled directly in Anthem Blue Cross (Not Covered California), then they will be left without coverage altogether. Current Anthem members will need to find another carrier!
Anthem policy holders are encouraged to shop for coverage and use BenefitPackages as a resource to help determine the best action plan for 2018. BenefitPackages will also determine if policy holders doctors and prescriptions are covered amongst the various carrier choices. Open enrollment begins in November, but members are encouraged to get a head start on finding the best carrier options in their area.
