GETTING STARTED USING ANTHEM
At times, it may seem difficult to navigate a large healthcare insurance website to try to find the resources you need. However, you can usually get what you need just by following the menu options. Listed below is a step-by-step example.
Lets say you are looking for a marriage and family therapist and you have ANTHEM PPO In-Network.
- Scroll down and click "Find a Doctor"
- Scroll down and click "Search as a Guest"
- Click "Continue"
- Click "Through Employer"
- Click "California"
- Click "Medical"
- Click "Blue Cross PPO (Prudent Buyer) Large Group"
- Click "Continue"
- Click "Behavioral Health"
- Click "Marriage and Family"
- Enter your location (city in which you'd like to receive service)
- Enter the miles you want to use for your search (e.g., 10 miles)
- You will then get a return of therapists that you can scroll
through. You will see their areas of expertise, their specific
location, and phone number.
Once you get to the option to click on "Marriage & Family," there are other options in that small window such as psychologists, psychiatrists, and behavioral & substance abuse specialists to name a few.
This is just one example. You can navigate the Anthem website for many other services covered by your healthcare insurance.
Remember: if you have the Anthem HMO plan you will first need to go through your regular primary care physician to get a referral to one of these resources.
