Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Ohio offers a wide range of health care insurance plans to meet individual and family requirements.
Blue Traditional: It is a fee for service plan that allows members to visit the physician, specialist, and hospital of their choice. As a member of this plan, you will be required to pay deductibles and coinsurance.
Blue Short-Term: If you are a student, or between jobs and find yourself in urgent need of a short term insurance plan for one to six months, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Ohio offers you this Blue Short-Term plan so that you do not need to spend sleepless nights worrying about illnesses or accidents during this “in between” time.
Blue Access and Blue Access Economy: These plans offer PPO, or Preferred Provider Organization, benefits with several different levels of deductibles for you to choose from. As members of these plans, you have the freedom to choose any doctor, specialist, or hospital within the organization without having to get a referral.
Blue Access Value: It is a PPO plan that provides a lower premium by offering members the same in-patient hospital advantages of their other PPO policies while limiting outpatient benefits. This plan especially suits those persons who would prefer lower health care premiums while having the ability to protect themselves and their families from catastrophic illnesses.
Blue Access Saver (HSA): If you are a member of this plan, you get the benefits of PPOs and tax savings at the same time through the use of a high-deductible PPO with a Health Savings Account. You will, however, have to contribute pre-tax dollars to a special account from which they will pay their medical bills.
With its TonikSM health plans, aimed especially at the young and healthy, you receive preventive, emergency, prescription, dental, and vision coverage.
Anthem BCBS also provides Medigap coverage for Medicare beneficiaries. Its Medicare Supplement Plans provide government-prescribed Basic Benefits.
