Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield health insurance recently announced the expansion of their HMOSelect network in Colorado to Elbert, El Paso and Teller counties effective November 1, 2006.
What this means
For cost-conscious Small Group employers, there’s bound to be an HMOSelect plan that fits their unique needs. These employers can make the most of their health care dollars, while their employees have access to community-based physicians and other providers where they live and work.
Smaller network = greater savings
Your costs may be up to 20 percent lower than Anthem’s traditional HMO health insurance plan costs when you choose an HMOSelect plan to offer your employees. That’s because the network is smaller than with Anthem’s statewide HMO Colorado network. But smaller doesn’t mean they’ve sacrificed quality in our network.
Members have more choice from a select network
The expanded HMOSelect network now includes 14 facilities, which are listed below, and more than 5,000 physicians in the following Colorado counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder , Broomfield , Denver , Douglas, Elbert, El Paso , Jefferson and Teller. That’s two out of three HMO Colorado providers in this 10-county area who participate in the HMOSelect network.
Members can only use providers in Anthem’s Colorado HMOSelect network, which includes Centura Health facilities and physicians and several other facilities in the three-county Colorado Springs area and seven-county Denver metro area. Except for emergency care, services obtained from providers outside the HMOSelect network aren’t covered.
