Anthem Blue Cross (Anthem) offers several types of Medicare Advantage Plans, including Medicare Advantage PPO Plans.

With an Anthem Medicare PPO, you have the flexibility to choose any doctor or specialist in your plan network without having to get a referral. You can also see doctors outside of your plan network, though you may pay more out-of-pocket for your services.

What is Anthem Medicare Advantage?

Medicare Advantage Plans – such as the ones offered by Anthem – combine the benefits of Medicare Part A and Part B (called Original Medicare) into one convenient plan.

Many Anthem Medicare Advantage plans also offer benefits not offered by Original Medicare, such as prescription drug coverage and hearing, vision and dental benefits.

What is an Anthem Medicare Advantage PPO?

PPO stands for Preferred Provider Organization.

Anthem Medicare PPO plans come with several features and benefits:

  • With an Anthem PPO plan, you do not need to obtain a referral to seek health care from a specialist in your plan network. You are free to schedule appointments with various types of in-network doctors as you please.

  • You can select a primary care physician (PCP) who provides personalized care and gets to know your whole health needs.

  • Anthem Medicare PPO plans offer a large network of doctors, hospitals and facilities.

  • An Anthem PPO plan allows you to visit health care providers outside of your plan network, though services may cost more. Some other types of insurance plans do not provide coverage for any care that is received outside of the plan’s network.

  • Anthem offers Medicare Advantage PPO plans with premiums as low as $0. Anthem Medicare Advantage PPO plans also include an out-of-pocket spending limit, which Original Medicare does not offer.

Anthem Medicare Advantage PPO plan benefits, costs and availability can vary based on your location.
