Anthem Blue Cross EPO Individual/Family Coverage Now Includes Cedars-Sinai as Tier 1 Facility

From Thomas M. Priselac, President and CEO

I am pleased to let you know that effective May 1, 2014, Cedars-Sinai is being offered as a Tier 1 facility in Anthem Blue Cross Exclusive Provider Organization (EPO) individual and family health plans (i.e., nonemployer, nongroup plans) offered through Covered California as well as outside of the exchange. This will provide significantly expanded access to Cedars-Sinai for those purchasing individual insurance from Anthem Blue Cross.

Previously, Cedars-Sinai was offered by Anthem Blue Cross as a Tier 2 facility, meaning that patients had to pay higher co-pays and deductibles for treatment.

The change applies to all of Anthem’s EPO metal plans (Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze) as well as Anthem’s Minimum Coverage EPO plan.

For more information on the individual and family health plans that Cedars-Sinai is contracted with, please visit cedars-sinai.edu/insurance.
