INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Indiana (Anthem) is committed to increasing consumer access to high-quality, affordable healthcare. As part of this commitment, Anthem announced today that it added Indiana University Health (IU Health) to its preferred list of care providers for its Medicare Advantage HMO and DSNP plans. Effective June 1, 2019, IU Health’s care providers are considered in-network for these health plans, resulting in lower out-of-pocket costs for consumers compared to seeing a care provider outside of Anthem’s network. IU Health is already in-network for Anthem’s Medicare Advantage PPO plan.
“Anthem strives to give our Medicare Advantage consumers easier access to healthcare services that align with our whole-person approach to care, and the addition of IU Health to our HMO and DSNP networks is consistent with that goal,” said David McNichols, President of Anthem’s Central Medicare Region. “We look forward to working with IU Health and its care providers to help Medicare-eligible individuals lead healthier lives.”
Indiana University Health is one of the largest networks of physicians in the state of Indiana and gives consumers access to leading-edge medicine and treatment options that are available first, and often only, at IU Health. Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, with dozens of facilities statewide, IU Health is a regional leader in providing the right healthcare when and where it’s needed.
Anthem currently offers a number of health plans that meet the needs of individuals eligible for Medicare. These plans are Anthem MediBlue Plus (HMO), Anthem MediBlue Dual Advantage (HMO SNP), Anthem MediBlue Extra (HMO), Anthem MediBlue Access (PPO), Anthem MediBlue Access Plus (PPO), and Anthem MediBlue Access Basic (RPPO).
Some consumers are eligible to enroll in a Medicare plan today. These individuals include those who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid benefits; consumers who qualify for a special enrollment period, such as those who recently moved; or individuals who are turning 65 and newly eligible for Medicare.
