Nothing's perfect but we are working on the providers in our area. According to Anthem Blue Cross: "213 Doctors/Medical Professionals in the Bronze DirectAccess plan within 30 miles of 95966". Please see PROVIDERS.
We expected to see the doctors to share in the cutbacks from the Affordable Care Act, but instead....
See the article: SGR Fix: No Pay Cut!
An article in the Chronicle entitled "Covered California Pulls Troubled Online Physician Directory" caught my eye. My first reaction was to think: "How can anyone believe Covered California anyway?"
The reality is: You don't go to the government spin center to get facts. The actual function of the Exchange "Covered California" is for facilitate the government subsidies based on the rules. The fact that they delved into areas that portrayed them as the insurer has left many folks assuming that they were actually going to make contracts with providers. This assumption is incorrect.
Most of my clients selected Anthem Blue Cross to provide their government subsidized health insurance and the current list of providers for our area is available directly from "The Horse's Mouth" i.e. The Contracting Company.
You can go to this URL and work up a list: Tool for Generating Current Provider Lists by Area
Or you can download the lists I have generated for the Oroville Area:
Anthem Bronze Plan per 2/9/14
Anthem Silver Plan per 2/9/14
Anthem Gold Plan per 2/9/14
Anthem Platinum Plan per 2/9/14
