2019 Medicare Advantage Plans from Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield

If you’re shopping for a Medicare Advantage plan in 2019, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Anthem) Medicare Advantage Plans may be available in your area.

Take a look at the types of Anthem Medicare Advantage Plans listed below to determine which type of policy may be best for your needs.

MediBlue HMO

An Anthem Medicare Advantage HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) plan uses a primary care physician to coordinate your care within a large network of providers. For emergency care, you may be able to visit an out-of-network provider.

Your primary care physician (PCP) provides most of your health care. If you need further tests or treatment, they will refer you to a specialist within the network.

HMO plans tend to cost less than other plans, especially if you visit doctors and providers in your Anthem plan network.    

MediBlue PPO

An Anthem Medicare Advantage PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) Plan also has a network of participating providers, but it typically can give you a little more freedom to visit doctors outside of the network.

MediBlue PPO members do not need a referral from their PCP to schedule an appointment with a specialist. 

Special Needs Plans

An Anthem Medicare Special Needs Plan (SNP) is specially designed to meet your needs if you have a specific disease, health condition or other characteristic.

The participating doctors and other providers in the SNP network specialize in or are familiar with specific health conditions. The plan coverage is built around the specific types of tests and treatments that you might need. 

Special Needs Plans tend to be low cost. If you are eligible for Medicaid or reside in a long-term care facility, you may also qualify for a Special Needs Plan based on your circumstances.
