With the Anthem MediBlue PPO plan you are able to see specialists without a referral, you can also see doctors, specialists, clinics and hospitals outside of the Anthem PPO network.  If you see a provider outside of the ppo network you will pay more for the services than if you see a provider who is “in-network.”

SilverSneakers Fitness program is included in the Anthem MediBlue PPO plans throughout California.
